Gorgon are a solo project from France that plays a very old school form of black metal and this is a review of his album "The Veil Of Darkness" which will be released in 2019 by Osmose Productions.
Acoustic guitar playing and evil whispers start off the album along with a brief use of demonic voices before going into a heavier direction while the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal growls and when tremolo picking and blast beats are utilized they give the music more of a raw feeling.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style while the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's style along with the songs also bringing in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and as the album progresses synths can also be heard briefly as well as the riffs also utilizing some melody at times and when guitar solos and leads are finally utilized they are done in a very melodic style.
Gorgon plays a style of black metal that is very raw, old school and traditional sounding, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism, War and Darkness themes.
In my opinion Gorgon are a very great sounding old school black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Stil Six Six Six" "Border Of The Forest" "Burned For Him" and "Our Crusade". 8 out of 10.
