Fossaryu are a solo project from Italy that plays a very raw form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 demo "Lament" which was released by Masked Dead Records.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the demo along with a brief use of growls before adding in high pitched black metal screams and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording while the riffs also add in death metal influences and the solos and leads sound very dark and melodic.
When the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which gives the music more of a raw black metal feeling and clean playing along with a small amount of synths can also be heard briefly and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Fossaryu plays a style of black metal that can be very raw while also having its dark, atmospheric and melodic moments as well as a touch of death metal which also makes the music stand out a bit more, the production sounds very dark and raw and the lyrics are a concept of a man battling death and his defeat.
In my opinion Fossaryu are a very great sounding raw and melodic black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Lament II". 8 out of 10.
