The Projectionist are an international band with members from both Canada and the United States that plays a very raw and depressive form of satanic black metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Exalted Solitude" which will be released on April 20th as a joint effort between Appalachian Noise and The true Plague Records.
Avant garde sounds start off the album and a few seconds later melodic riffing and grim yet depressive black metal screams are added onto the recording along with the music getting heavier and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and the solos and leads also use a great amount of melody.
Spoken word parts can be heard briefly and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard along with a good portion of the tracks being along and epic in length and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the tremolo picking also gives the songs a more raw feeling and one track brings in classical guitars and demonic growls a re also used briefly.
The Projectionist plays a style of black metal that is very raw and depressive sounding while also having an occult atmosphere, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover dark, hateful, depressive, satanic and occult themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding sounding from The Projectionist and if you are a fan of r aw and depressive satanic black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sucking A Most Hateful Claustram" "If Erased, So Fertile Outright" "Chapel Of Astaroth" and "Zarathustra". 8 out of 10.
