Cancer are a band from Australia that plays a very depressive form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2016 ep "Terminal".
Atmospheric synths start off the ep before going into a heavier direction which also introduces depressive black metal screams and melodic guitar leads onto the recording and the riffs also use a decent amount of melody and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard along with the vocals getting more grim at times.
During the faster sections of the songs a decent amount of tremolo picking can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw black metal feeling and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and elements of post black metal can also be heard in some parts of the songs and there is also a brief use of melodic vocals.
Cancer plays a style of depressive black metal that also has its raw, atmospheric and melodic moments while also having a modern take on the genre, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Cancer are a very great sounding depressive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Distant Dreams" and "To Taste your Contempt".
