Digir Gidim are a duo from an unknown location that plays an avant garde form of occult black metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "I Thought There Was A Sun Awaiting My Awakening" which will be released on March 31st by Aeternitas Tenebrarum Musicae Fundamentum.
Avant garde sounds along with some melodic riffing starts off the album while the faster sections of the music bring in a decent amount of blast beats along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic style and ritualistic chants can also be heard at times and after awhile grim yet high pitched black metal screams make their presence known.
Deep growls can be heard at times while clean singing avant garde vocals are also added into certain sections of the recording and the songs bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts.
During the faster sections of the songs a great amount of tremolo picking can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw black metal feeling and all of the tracks are very long and epic in length and when synths are utilized they make the music more experimental and ritualistic along a variety of many different sounding keys.
Digir Gidim plays a style of black metal that mixes the occult and avant garde sides of the genre to create something very different, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover ancient Mesopotamia, esoteric doctrines, cosmology and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Digir Gidim are a very great sounding avant garde occult black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Revelation Of The Wandering" and "The Glow Inside The Shell". 8 out of 10.
