Karg are a band from Austria that plays a very atmospheric form of post black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Dornerivogel" which will be released in November by AOP Records.
Acoustic guitar playing starts off the album which is also mixed into the heavier sections of the music at times along with some post rock and shoegaze elements also being used quite a bit throughout the recording while the vocals are mostly depressive black metal screams and the solos and leads are done in a very melodic style.
All of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the faster sections of the songs also use a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the music more of a raw feeling along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as the riffs also utilizing a lot of melody, clean playing and ambient elements can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and one track also introduces spoken word parts onto the recording and as the album progresses clean vocals can also be heard briefly.
Karg plays a style of post black metal that is very atmospheric along with a great amount of shoegaze elements, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in German ans cover aspiration, depression and self destruction themes.
In my opinion Karg are a very great sounding atmospheric post black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Drangsal" "L'appel du vide" and "Advent". 8 out of 10.
