Darkosis/Self Titled/Glassolalia/2011 EP Review


  Darkosis  are  a  band  from  Oregon  that  plays  a  very  raw  and  primitive  form  of  experimental  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  self  released  2011  ep  which  was  released  by  Glassolalia.

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  blast  beats  being  utilized  at  times,  while  the  sound  effects  bring  elements  of  experimental  and  noise  to  the  recording,  as  for  the  bass  playing  it  has  a  very  strong  and  powerful  tone  with  heavy  riffing  that  dominates  throughout  the recording.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  black  metal  riffs  that  are  very  raw  and  primitive  sounding  while  also  utilizing  some  experimental  elements,  while  the  lead  guitars  are  very  dark  sounding  black  metal  guitar  solos  and  leads,  as  for  the  acoustic  guitars  they  use  finger  picking  and  full  chords  to  add  more  original  elements  to  the recording.

  Vocals  range  from  high  pitched  to  grim  sounding  black  metal  screams  that  have  a  very  depressive  tone  to  them  at  times  while  also  using  some  deep  demonic  growls  and  weird  vocals,  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark  themes  and  are  written  in  German,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  to  it.

  In  my  opinion  Darkosis  are  a  very  great  sounding  experimental,  raw  and  primitive  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Mork"  and  "Oscuro".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
