This is a review of a split album between Germany's Farsot and ColdWorld called "Toteninsel" which will be released in September by Prophecy Productions and we will start off the review with Farsot a band that plays a very dark form form of black metal.
Their side of the split starts out with some acoustic guitars while grim whispers can also be heard briefly along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and after awhile the music gets heavier as well as the whispered vocals evolving into black metal screams.
One of their tracks is very long and epic in length while the music always stick to a slower direction as well as alternating between both acoustic and heavy parts along with t he second track being instrumental and also adding in a small amount of synths, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics are written in German and cover elemental earth themes.
In my opinion Farsot are a very great sounding dark black metal band and if you are a fan of bands that use a lot of acoustic guitars, you should check out their side of the split.
Next up is ColdWorld a solo project that plays an ambient form of depressive black metal.
His side of t he split starts out with some distorted amp noise before going into more of a heavier direction while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the first track being very long and epic in length as well as the riffs also using a decent amount of melody.
Vocals are mostly grim yet depressive black metal screams while acoustic guitars can also be heard briefly along with the riffs also adding in a small amount of dark sounding melodies as well as the solos and leads being done in a very melodic style and the second track is an instruemntal, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics are written in German and cover elemental water themes.
In my opinion ColdWorld are a very great sounding ambient depressive black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out his side of the split.
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of depressive and German black metal. 8 out of 10.
