Frigoris are a band from Germany that plays an atmospheric form of post black metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Nur Ein Moment" which will be released in August by Hypnotic Dirge Records.
Nature sounds and clean guitars start off the album and also bring in touches of post rock and after a minute melodic guitar leads start becoming a very huge part of the recording along with some depressive black metal screams and the riffs also use a great amount of melody and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
During the faster sections of the songs a great amount of tremolo picking can be heard which also gives the music more of a raw black metal feeling and acoustic guitars can also be heard at times which also gives the music more of a progressive feeling and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
A great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and violins can also be heard at times and some songs also bring in a small amount of melodic singing along with a small amount of whispers and you can also hear a lot of doom metal influences in the slower sections of the songs and the music also brings in more of a modern and atmospheric sound.
Frigoris plays a style of black metal that is very atmospheric and depressive in the modern style of the genre while also mixing it in with elements of doom metal and post rock, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in German and are a concept album based upon isolation and depression themes.
In my opinion Frigoris are a very great sounding atmospheric post black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Truwen" and "Himeros". 8 out of 10.
