Cold Fell are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a very atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Irwell" which will be released in February by Argento Records.
A very dark, melodic yet heavy sound starts off the album along with some drum beats a few seconds later and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and after awhile grim black metal screams make their presence known and the solos and leads also use a great amount of tremolo picking and melody.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking riffing can be heard which also gives the music more of a raw feeling and the music also mixes in more of a modern and atmospheric style while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and clean playing can also be heard at times and a great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and angry shouts can also be heard in certain sections of the recording along with some of the riffs adding in a touch of death metal.
Cold Fell plays a style of black metal that is very atmospheric and modern while also mixing in the rawness of the old school style, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover dark, depressive, grim and unpleasant themes.
In my opinion Cold Fell are a very great sounding atmospheric black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE 'Skull Crushed Against Salford Cobblestone" "Folly (Health And Glory)" and "Dream Of Seppuku". 8 out of 10.
