Seelenmord/And We Only Find Solitude Part I/2011 EP Review

  Seelenmord are a duo from Argentina that plays a very raw and primitive form of melodic black metal and this is a review of their self released 2011 EP "And We Only Find Solitude Part I".

Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that are very raw and primitive sounding mixed in with some dark sounding melodies and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on this recording, as for the classical guitars which are only utilized briefly they use finger picking to bring a very dark and depressive sound to the music.

Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams that have a depressive feeling to them at times with a brief use of clean singing being used on the first song as well as a spoken word part being utilized on the last song, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.

In my opinion Seelenmord are a very great raw and primitive sounding melodic black metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The World Cries In Rain" and "Beneath The Rubble". RECOMMONDED BUY.
