Wilt are a band from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada that plays an atmospheric and depressive form of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Ruin" which will be released in May by Vendetta.
Clean playing starts off the album and also mixes in with the heavier sections of the songs at times while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic fashion as well as the vocals being mostly depressive black metal screams.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic yet atmospheric fashion along with the faster sections of the songs also using a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the music more of a raw feeling as well as the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and they close the album with an instrumental.
On this recording Wilt takes the cascadian, atmospheric and depressive sides of black metal and mixes them together to create a very diverse album, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover heartbreak and despair themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Wilt and if you are a fan of atmospheric and depressive black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Into The unknown" and "Veil of GOld". 8 out of 10.
