Algeia are a duo from Ukraine that was featured before in this zine as 'My Dying World "Mako'" and plays an atmospheric and depressive form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 album "Coming Storm...".
Acoustic guitars and nature sounds start off the album before going into a very fast, melodic and raw direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and all of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
One of the tracks is an instrumental while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when vocals are utilized they are mostly high pitched yer depressive black metal screams along with a small amount of clean singing as well as a brief use of deep growls and acoustic guitars also return in certain sections of the recording and spoken word parts are added onto the last track.
Algeia plays a style of black metal that is very atmospheric and depressive sounding, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics focus more on darkness, nature, and depressive themes.
In my opinion Algeia are a very great sounding atmospheric and depressive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Nails Of Reaper" and "Last Scream". 8 out of 10.
