Frust are a solo project from Austria that plays post black metal and this is a review of his self released 2018 ep "Elements".
Melodic chants along with some nature orientated soundscapes start off the ep before going into more of a heavier and melodic musical direction while atmospheric synths are also added into some parts of the music as well as some clean playing also being utilized at times and the solos and leads also use a great amount of melody.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great amount of post rock elements while the faster sections of the music also utilizing some tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the music more of a raw feeling along with the vocals being mostly high pitched black metal screams as well as the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and as the ep progresses female vocals can also be heard briefly.
Frust plays a style of post black metal that is very raw, melodic and ritualistic sounding, the production sounds very dark and raw while the song themes cover the 4 earth elements with a touch of alchemy.
In my opinion Frust are a very great sounding post black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Air" and "Fire". 8 out of 10.
