DSKNT are a solo project from Switzerland that plays a very abstract, experimental and avant garde form of black metal and this is a review of his 2017 album :PhSPHR Entropy" which will be released on cassette in December by Sentient Ruin Laboratories.
A very fast and dissonant sound starts off the album while the tremolo picking and blast beats gives the songs more of a raw feeling along with the vocals being mostly deep yet grim black metal screams and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length as well as utilizing a great amount of distorted melodies.
At times the music gets very technical while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the music also bringing in a decent amount of avant garde and experimental elements and when solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic fashion and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and at times the vocals also add in a touch of bestial black/death metal.
DSKNT plays a style of black metal that is very abstract, dissonant, experimental and avant garde sounding while also having its raw moments and also mixing in influences from t he French style of the genre, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover darkness, occultism and alchemy themes.
In my opinion DSKNT are a very great sounding abstract, experimental, dissonant and avant garde black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this cassette. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "S.O.P.O.R" and "PhSPHR Entropy". 8 out of 10.
