Finnr's Cane are a band from Ontario, Canada that plays a very atmospheric and progressive form of post black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Elegy" which will be released in June by Prophecy Productions.
Heavy riffs along with some melodic, modern and atmospheric guitar leads start off the album along with the slower sections of the songs bringing in elements of doom metal while cello's are in use instead of a bass guitar as well as some acoustic guitars also being added into certain sections of the recording.
A decent amount of melody can also be heard in the guitar riffing while spoken word parts and melodic vocals are also used at times along with the riffs also bringing in a great amount of melody as well as a brief use of nature sounds and grim black metal screams can also be heard at times, when the music finally speeds up a small amount of tremolo picking and blast cans also be heard and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and as the album progresses keyboards are added onto the recording.
Finnr's Cane plays a style of post black metal that is very atmospheric and progressive sounding, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover urban desolation, loss, grieving, personal struggle, the rebirth of the natural world, the quiet hours of the early morning and the passage of time.
In my opinion Finnr's Cane are a very great sounding atmospheric and progressive post black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Willow" "Earthsong" and "A Sky Of Violet And Pearl". 8 out of 10.
