Greytomb are a band from Australia that plays an atmospheric form of post black metal with some dsbm elements and this is a review of their 2017 ep "Monumental Microcosm" which will be released in December by Transcending Obscurity Records.
Dark yet melodic riffing starts off the ep along with some deep yet grim black metal screams and drum beats a few seconds later while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dissonant fashion.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling along with the vocals also getting more high pitched and depressive sounding while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as some clean singing that is than in more of a dark and grim fashion and all of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Greytomb plays a musical style that takes the post, atmospheric, depressive and modern forms of black metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover states of consciousness, nihilism, and metaphysical themes.
In my opinion Greytomb are a very great sounding atmospheric black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Antimeta". 8 out of 10.
