Draept are a duo from Sweden that plays a very harsh and lo-fi form of black metal and this is a review of their 2019 ep "II" which was released by Entartete Muzak Productions.
A very fast and raw sound starts off the album along with a great amount of blast beats while the riffs also add in a decent amount of tremolo picking. Vocals are mostly hateful sounding black metal screams along with the music also capturing a lo-fi atmosphere as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. One track also brings industrial elements and clean playing onto the recording while also having its experimental moments and both of the tracks are very diverse and sound very different from each other as well as the vocals also getting very grim sounding at times and you can also hear a small amount of melody in some of the guitar riffing.
Daraept brings in 2 tracks that are different with one being a very fast, harsh and raw black metal song while the second track keeps the roots of the previous mentioned genre and gets more experimental. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Draept are a very great sounding harsh and lo-fi black metal duo and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Oculus". 8 out of 10.
