FromHell are a band from Indonesia that has been featured before in this zine and plays a progressive form of pagan/black metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "March On Gravitation" which was released by Naturmacht Productions.
Sci fi orientated sounds start off the album along with some atmospheric synths and after awhile the music goes into a very fast musical direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats and the solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion and after awhile clean singing vocals are added onto the recording.
High pitched black metal screams can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when acoustic guitars are utilized they give the songs more of a progressive feeling and the riffs also bring in a touch of melodic death metal.
When tremolo picking is utilized they give the songs more of a raw black metal feeling while the music also mixes the atmospheric and heavy parts together in a lot of sections of the songs and a great majority of the tracks are very long and epic in length and elements of folk music can also be heard at times and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
FromHell creates another recording that remains true to the melodic and atmospheric style of black metal from the previous recording while also adding in more folk and progressive elments this time around, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Myths and Legends themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from FromHell and if you are a fan of the melodic, atmospheric, progressive and pagan styles of black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hibernation Sun" and "The Abandoned Stargate". 8 out of 10.
