Siete Lagunas are a band from Columbia that plays a very raw and depresiive form of black metal and this is a review of both of their demo's which where released onto a single compilation by La Caverna Records.
A very dark and distorted sound starts off the compilation before going into a faster direction which also introduces blast beats onto the recording while the vocals are mostly crazy sounding high pitched black metal screams and the guitar solos and leads are done in a very raw and melodic style.
When tremolo picking is utilized it gives the music more of a raw feeling while the songs also bring in a decent amount of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some bestial growls also being used briefly as well as the screams getting very depressive at times and as the album progresses a small amount of acoustic guitars can also be heard on a few tracks, some of the songs are also very short in length and at times the music gets very experimental and a later track also brings in spoken word parts.
Siet Algunas plays a style of black metal that is very raw, lo-fi and depressive sounding, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Spanish and cover dark themes along with one song being based upon the poetry of W.B Yeats.
In my opinion Siete Lagunas are a very great sounding raw, lo-fi and depressive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this compilation. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Llegando a la primera laguna /Carco" "Los bosques de Arcadia"La reinade las moscas" and "Oscurece en la segunda laguna". 8 out of 10.
