Codborn are a solo project from Belgium that plays an atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of his 2016 album "Lingering Voidwards" which was released by Final Sacrifice Records.
Atmospheric soundscapes start off the album along with some touches of ambient and they also mix in with both the heavier and melodic sides of the music and after awhile the music speeds up with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the songs more of a raw black metal feeling.
Vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched screams while deep growls are also used at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with melodic vocals and spoken word parts also being used briefly while clean guitars are also added into certain sections of t he recording and all of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Coldborn plays a style of black metal that is very raw and atmospheric while having its epic moments, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover death themes.
In my opinion Coldborn are a very great sounding atmospheric black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Call Of Death's Clarion" and "Withered". 8 out of 10.
