Rosk are a band from Poland that plays an atmospheric form of post black metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 album "Miasma".
Drum beats start off the album along with some atmospheric synths a few seconds later which also adds in a touch of ambient and after awhile guitar sounds are added onto the recording which also leads up to a heavier direction along with some high pitched black metal screams making their presence known.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them along with all of the tracks being very long and epic in length and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic fashion and the vocals also get very deep at times and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when clean guitars are utilized they add elements of post rock onto the album and melodic vocals are also used at times and when guitar solos and leads are brought into the music they are done in a very melodic fashion and the tremolo picking during the faster sections of the songs adds in more of a raw black metal style and slide guitars are added onto the last track along with some whispered vocals.
Rosk plays a style of post black metal that is very melodic and also mixes in a lot of ambient elements while also having its aggressive moments, the production has a very professional sound for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Rosk are a very great sounding atmospheric post black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "In Nomine Pestis" and "Infected II". 8 out of 10.
