Ecos Postumos are a solo project from Brazil that plays a depressive and suicidal form of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2017 demo "Diano de um Suicida".
A very fast lo-fi and raw sound starts off t he demo along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while the vocals are mostly grim yet depressive black metal screams that are somewhat buried in the mix while the slower sections bring in more of a suicidal atmosphere andclean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording
The songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the riffs also bringing in a great amount and depressive melodies as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them while keyboards and Gregorian chants can also be heard briefly on a couple of tracks and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion..
Ecos Posthumos plays a style of depressive, suicidal black metal that is very dark and raw sounding, the production sounds very raw and lo-fi while the lyrics are written in Portuguese and cover depression and borderline mental disorder themes.
In my opinion Ecos Posthumos are a very great sounding depressive and suicidal black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Detalhes Sordidos" and "Por do Sol". 8 out of 10.
