Horla are a 1 man band from the United Kingdom that has had their recent ep reviewed in this zine with their music style being more depressive post black metal on this recording and this is a review of their self released 2012 demo "Primordial Mockery".
Drums range from slow to mid paced drumming with not much in the way of fast playing or blast beats, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with primitive black metal riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced black metal riffs that combine modern, depressive and post black metal together while still maintaining a raw and primitive feeling and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams that bring in the old school elements of the genre as well as some samples, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound while you can still hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion this was another great recording from Horla and if you are into depressive, primitive or post black metal, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Spell". RECOMMENDED BUY.
