Plague Weaver are a band from Mississauga, Ontario, Canada that plays a very dark form of black metal and this is a review of their self titled and self released 2019 ep.
Dark sounding keyboards start off the ep before going into a heavier musical direction which also uses a decent amount of melody. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style while the vocals are done in more of a grim shouting style and the music also has a good mixture of old school and modern influences.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can also be heard while the tremolo picking also gives the music more of a raw feeling. All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the slower sections of the songs add in a touch of doom metal and throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Plague Weaver plays a style of black metal that is very dark yet very different from most bands of this genre, The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover darkness and religion themes.
In my opinion Plague Weaver are a very great and original sounding dark black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Condemned to Worship:. 8 out of 10.
