This is a review of another recording from Michigan's Skyggefigurrer which continues the atmospheric style of black metal from his previous release and the album was self released in 2017 and called "Rivet Av Tomhet".
A synth oriented intro starts off the album before going into more of a heavier and melodic direction which also introduces high pitched black metal screams onto the recording along with some clean playing being used briefly and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
When tremolo picking is utilized they give the music more of a raw feeling while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them, spoken word parts and death metal growls can also be heard briefly as well as the guitar leads being done in a technical style when they are utilized and as the album progresses a small amount of acoustic guitars are added onto the recording.
On this recording Skyggefigurrer goes for more of a guitar driven style of black metal while still having some atmospheric elements and a touch of death metal, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover darkness and death themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Skyggefigurrer and if you are a fan of atmospheric black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Spokelse" "Udodelighet" and "Besittelse". 8 out of 10.
