Esoctrilihum are a solo project from France that plays a very epic and majestic form of black metal and this is a review of his 2017 album "Mystic Echo From A Funeral Dimension" which will be released on July 28th by I, Voidhanger Records.
Acoustic guitar playing starts off the album along with some atmospheric synths a few seconds later and after awhile the music goes into more of a heavier and melodic direction along with some grim yet high pitched black metal screams and when the musical speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
During the faster sections of the songs the riffs utilize a great amount of tremolo picking which also gives the songs a more raw black metal edge while the music also mixes both the heavy and synth parts together along with the music also being very heavily rooted in the 90's era.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and acoustic guitars also make a return on some of the later tracks and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and as the album progresses death metal growls are also utilized at times and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts.
Esoctrilihum plays a style of black metal that is very epic and majestic while also having its raw, atmospheric and melodic moments, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dreams, death, esoteric and occult themes.
In my opinion Esoctrilihum are a very great sounding epic and majestic black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ancient Ceremony From Astral Land" "Infernus Spiritus" and "Mighty Darkness". 8 out of 10.
