Tremor are a band from Columbia that plays a mixture of black and death metal with some elements of Native American folk music and this is a review of their self released 2017 album "Fractal".
Nature sounds along with some acoustic guitars and folk instruments start off the album while spoken word parts can also be heard briefly before evolving into grim black metal screams which also takes the music into a heavier direction as well as the faster sections of the songs bringing in a great amount of blast beats.
Death metal growls are also used at times while the riffs also bring in a great amount of melody along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they add in more of an old school metal atmosphere.
The songs also mix the folk and metal elements together while the tremolo picking when it is utilized it gives the songs more of a raw edge and as the album progresses the music starts incorporating tribal style chants along with one track also introducing spoken word parts onto the recording.
Tremor plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in black metal while also adding in a great amount of death metal influences while the Native American folk music elements gives the songs more originality, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover the traditions and ancient wisdom of the Inca and other South American tribes.
In my opinion Tremor are a very great sounding mixture of black, death metal and Native American folk music and if you are looking for something original, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Maxims And Arrows" "Taka Unkay" "Chakana" and "Wisdom". 8/5 out of 10.
