Vrolok are a band from Pennsylvania that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style that I would describe as being ambient black metal and this is a review of their 2012 ep "Death Rattle Manifestation" which was released by Fallen Empire Records during the year of 2012 with the songs originally being recorded in 2003.
Drums range from slow to mid paced playing with no fast drumming or blast beats being present on this recording, while the synths bring a very dark, atmospheric and ambient sound to the recording, as for the bass playing it has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced ambient, occult black metal riffs that utilize some dark, raw and primitive sounding elements in the riffing and there are no guitar solos or leads present on t his recording.
Vocals range from grim sounding black metal screams to spoken word ritualistic chanting, while the lyrics cover abstract, occult and existenalism 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 is another great sounding recording from Vrolok and if you are a fan of ambient occult black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Mark Of Doom". RECOMMENDED BUY.
