Ambrotos are an international band with members from both Greece and Mexico that plays a philosophical form of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 ep "ἄμβροτο" which will be released in September by Sleaszy Rider Records.
Clean playing and synths start off the ep before adding in a powerful sounding bass guitar which also takes the music into a faster direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling while the vocals are mostly grim black metal screams.
Both of the songs are very heavily rooted in the old school Greek tradition while clean vocals can also be heard briefly along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic style as well as both of the tracks being long and epic in length and the songs also bring in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and spoken word parts can also be heard briefly.
Ambrotos plays a style of Greek black metal that is very heavily rooted in the 90's era, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover pre Socratic philosophy and ideas.
In my opinion Ambrotos are a very great sounding philosophical black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Dimensional Rivers". 8 out of 10.
