The Projectionst are a band with members from both the United States and Canada that h ave had an album reviewed before in this zine and plays a very raw and depressive form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Poisonous Disengagement".
A very heavy and raw sound starts off the album along with a great amount of tremolo picking and high pitched depressive black metal screams and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and the riffs also bring in a great amount of dark sounding melodies.
During the faster sections of the songs a great amount of blast beats can be heard and the music also brings in a great amount of 90's second wave influences and the solos and lead are also done in a very raw and melodic style and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Clean guitars along with whispers are also used in certain sections of the recording and some of the tracks are long and epic in length and some songs also bring in spoken vocals and as the album progresses a brief use of synths can be heard and they close the album with a cover of Twisted Sister's "Under The Blade".
The Projectionist creates another recording that remains true to the raw and depressive style of black metal from t heir previous release, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from the Projectionist and if you are a fan of raw and depressive black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Epilepsy Curse" "Where Are your Kingdom Of Her!" "Most Imperative of Self Harm" ans "Under The Blade". 8 out of 10.
