Greece's Isolert have returned with a new recording that continues the raw and melodic style of black metal from previous releases and this is a review of their self titled 2017 ep which will be released on cassette in April by Liver Damage Records and on cd in summer time from Ogmios Records.
Distorted guitar riffs start off the ep before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also utilizes a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats along with some grim black metal screams a few seconds later and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
Deep growls can be heard in some parts of t he songs along with the riffs also using a great amount of melody while the music also brings in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the music is also very heavily rooted in the 90's second wave era and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they ar e done in a very melodic fashion and the music also always remains very heavy and they close the ep with a cover of Slayer's "Evil Has No Boundaries".
Isolert creates another recording that remains true to the raw and melodic style of black metal from previous releases, the production sounds very dark, r aw and heavy while the lyrics cover misanthropy, death, metaphysical and hate themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Isolert and if you are a fan of raw and melodic black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Isolert" "Depression Crawls In Mankind's Cage". 8 out of 10.
