Realm Of Wolves are a band from Hungary that plays an atmospheric form of post black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Oblivion" which will be released in November as a joint effort between Casus Belli Musica and Beverina.
Acoustic guitars and shoegaze elements start off the album while the music also brings in a great amount of post rock influences and after awhile the music goes into a heavier direction and also introduces melodic guitar leads onto the recording as well as the riffs also adding in a great amount of melody.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while clean playing can also be heard in some parts of the recording along with the vocals being mostly grim sounding black metal screams along with the faster sections of the songs also utilizing a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling.
The tracks also add in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts, as the album progresses an instrumental is added onto the recording while a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with the vocals are having their semi melodic moments on a couple of songs.
Realm Of Wolves plays a style of post black metal that is very melodic and atmospheric sounding, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark, philosophical and esoteric themes.
In my opinion Realm Of Wolves 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 "Ignifer" and "Into The Woods of Oblivion". 8 out of 10.
