Brazil's Ecos Postumos have returned with a new recording which continues the depressive and suicidal style of black metal from his previous release and this is a review of his self released 2017 ep "Janela Para a Loucara".
A very depressive and melodic sound starts off the demo along with some suicidal style black metal screams while the faster sections of the songs bring in a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the songs a more raw feeling along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
One of the tracks is long and epic in length while Gregorian chants can also be heard briefly along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic fashion and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them as well a s a brief use of rain sounds, clean playing can also be heard briefly on a few tracks and a couple of songs also brings in a small amount of clear vocals, spoken word parts and synths.
Ecos Postumos creates another recording that continues the suicidal and depressive approach to black metal from his previous demo, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Portuguese and cover suicidal and depressive themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Ecos Postumos and if you are a fan of suicidal and depressive black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hopocristia" and "Borderline". 8 out of 10.
