The Projectionist are a band with members from both Canada and the United States that plays a very raw and depressive form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "The Gallow Forest Eulogy" which was released as a joint effort between Appalachain Noise Records and true Plague Records.
Distorted sounds start off the album before adding in guitars and you can also hear voices in the background and after awhile grim yet depressive black metal screams are added onto the recording and you can also hear all of the musical instruments and a couple of the t racks are very long and epic in length.
Demonic growls can be heard in certain sections of the recording and the tremolo picking also gives the music more of a raw black metal feeling and as the album progresses clean guitars can also be heard briefly and all of the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction while also being very diverse and different from each other and when guitar leads are utilized they stick to a more melodic style.
The Projectionist plays a style of depressive black metal that can be very raw at times while also bringing in a great amount of diversity, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion The Projectionist are a very great sounding raw and depressive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre,you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Automation Stare" and "Imagined Fortress Made To Give Way". 8 out of 10.
