France's solo project has returned with a new track which is in the atmospheric style of black metal and features Tahazu as a special quest on vocals and this is a review of his self released 2019 single "!984 _ The Eyes Are Upon You".
Spoken word, war and movie samples start off the track before adding in some acoustic guitars before going into a heavier direction. Vocals are mostly deep yet depressive black metal screams that also get very high pitched at times while the riffs also use a decent amount of melody.
The music sticks to mostly a slow or mid tempo direction along with a small amount of blast beats when the music speeds up while the production sounds very powerful for being a self released track while the lyrics are based upon George Orwell's dystopian novel "1984'.
In my opinion this is another great sounding track from AnKou and if you are a fan of atmospheric black metal, you should check out this single. 8 out of 10.
