Wilds Forlorn/We, The Damned/Obscure Abhorrance Productions/2012 CD Review


  This  is  the  final  review  of  a  recording  from  Wilds  Forlorn  which  continues  their  atmospheric  approach  to  black  metal  with  the  album  being  called  "We,  The  Damned"  and  released  by  Obscure Abhottance  in  the  year  of  2012.

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  blast  beats  being  utilized  at  times,  while  the  synths  bring  a  very  dark,  neo  classical  and atmospheric  sound  to  the  recording  along  with  a  brief  use  of  folk  instruments,  as  for  the  bass  playing  it  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  are  coming  out  of  the  guitars.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  melodic  black  metal  riffs  that  utilize  some  raw  and  primitive  sounding  elements,  while  the  lead  guitars  which  are  only  used  briefly  on  one  song  are  very  melodic  sounding  black  metal  guitar  solos  and  leads.

  Vocals a re  mostly  grim  sounding  black  metal  screams  along  with  a  brief  use  of  deep  growls  and  spoken  word  samples,  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark  and  depressing  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  strong,  powerful,  heavy  and  dark  sound  with  some  of  the  songs  being  long  and  epic  in  length.  

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  album  from  Wilds  Forlorn  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  atmospheric  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Traces"  and  "We,  The  Damned".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
