Moon/Cacadeus Chalice/Wolfsvuur Records/2010 Cassette Review

 Moon are a band from Queensland, Australia that plays a very atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of their cassette "Cacadeus Chalice" which was released in 2010 by Wolfsvuur Records.

Drums alternate between slow, midpaced, to fast drumming with some brutal blast beats thrown in, while the synths are very dark and primitive sounding with a dark ambient feel that is morbid and haunting, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone that follows the riffs that are coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars are a mixture of slow, midpaced and fast primitive black metal riffs that have a dpressive and doomy feel at times which makes the music sound very haunting with a small amount of soft playing, and there are little to no guitar leads or solos present on this recording.

Vocals are all high pitched black metal screams, while the lyrics cover dark and occultic types of subjects, as for the production it has a very raw and dark feel to it.

In my opinion Moon are a very good band that should appeal to fans that like black metal that mixes occultism, ambient and depressive black metal. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Forest Samhain" and "Chalice". RECOMMENDED BUY.
