Spain's Khmer have returned with a new recording that continues the black metal and crust mixture of previous releases and this is a review of their 2017 album "Larga Sombra" which will be released in August by WOOAAAARGH.
A very heavy and melodic sound starts off the album along with some black metal screams and d beats a few seconds later and the music also mixes in touches of post hardcore at times and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and as the album progresses a brief use of acoustic guitars along with a very short instrumental can be heard before returning back to a heavier direction and the songs also mix in a great amount of crust influences.
Khmer creates another recording that remains true to the black metal and crust mixture of previous releases, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics are written in Spanish and cover angst, rage, corruption, and introspection themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Khmer and if you are a fan of black metal and crust, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Larga Sombra" "El Ardor De La Luna" and "Soledad". 8 out of 10.
