Adar are a band from Littleton, Colorado that has also been interviewed with a musical style that i would described as being raw black metal with a death metal edge by this zine before and this is a review of their 2009 E.P "Into The Frozen Ocean" which was released by Mountain Drought Distro.
Drums range from mid paced to fast playing with some brutal blast beats, while the bass playing has a very dark tone and seems to follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and on the last song they sound very powerful.
Rhythm guitars are mostly mid paced to fast raw black metal riffs that also have a great amount of death metal influences and a great sense of melody, while the lead guitars combine black and death metal influences together in the solos and also utilize a great amount of skill with some technical parts, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking and full chords to bring a darker sound to the music.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams with some deep death metal growls being thrown in at times, while the lyrics cover dark themes with an occult edge, as for the production it has a very dark and raw feel to it.
In my opinion Adar are a very good black metal band, and if you are a fan of black metal that uses a lot of talent and skill, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Blood Stained Moon" and "Waves Of Oblivion". RECOMMENDED BUY.
