This is the final review of a demo from Germany's Koge which continues the mystical and lunar tradition of black metal and was also self released in 2016.
A very mid tempo guitar sound starts off the demo and a few seconds later atmospheric keyboards are added onto the recording along with some grim yet depressive black metal screams and when the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the music more of a raw feeling.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic and atmospheric style and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and there are 2 ambient instrumental in between the heavier tracks.
Koge creates a recording that mixes in some of the more raw side of his black metal style with some ambient elements, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover death, philosophy and mysticism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Koge and if you are a fan of ambient black metal, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Drought" and "Sigh". 8 out of 10.
