Ohtar are a band from Poland that plays a national socialist form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Euthanasia Of Existence" which was released by Deathrune Recordings.
A very dark, heavy and melodic sound starts off the album and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and after awhile grim black metal screams are added into the music and the tremolo picking gives the songs more of a raw feeling and the guitar leads also use a decent amount of melody.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the music can also get very atmospheric in more of a guitar driven style at times and all of the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction while also somewhat speeding up briefly on a couple of songs and adding in a brief blast beat and depressive elements are also used at times and one track also mixes clean guitars into the heavier side of the song.
Ohtar plays a style of national socialist black metal that is very different from most bands of the genre and also mixes in some modern atmospheric and depressive elements which also makes their music stand out a lot more, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover national socialism, war, death, hatred and suicide themes.
In my opinion Ohtar are a very great sounding atmospheric national socialist black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Portrayal Of Damage" and "Weary thoughts". 8 out of 10.
