The Scars In Pneuma are a band from Italy that plays a very epic and melodic form of black metal and this is a review of their album "The APth Of Seven Sorrows" which will be released in 2019 as a joint effort between Promethean Fire and Kolony Records.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the music more of a raw feeling along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic style.
Vocals are mostly deep yet grim black metal screams 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 as well as some of the tracks being very long and epic in length and the music also mixes in some elements of death metal at times, one song also introduces female vocals and acoustic guitars onto the recording and as the album progresses a brief use of synths can also be heard.
The Scars In Pneuma plays a style of black metal that is very epic and melodic sounding while also adding in some death metal elements, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dealing with your own demons, life's biggest regrets, the passing of time and the beloved people we lost themes.
In my opinion The Scars In Pneuma are a very great sounding epic and melodic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE :"Souls Are Burning" 'The Secrets That We Keep" and "The Glorious Empire Of Sand". 8 out of 10.
