This is the final review of a recording from A God Or An Other which continues their hybrid of black metal, sludge, experimental and post rock with the full length being self released in 2013 and called "Towers Of Silence".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing which is utilized for the first time has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them, as for the trumpets and samples which are only used briefly bring a very dark and experimental sound to the album.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine raw and primitive sounding black metal with sludge, experimental and post rock together to create a sound of their own with some melody being thrown into the riffing at times as well as a great amount of heavy distortion, as for the lead guitars which are only used briefly are very distorted and melodic sounding post metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars they are only utilized on the last song and use finger picking and full chords to add more variety to the album.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams with some spoken word samples being utilized at times, while the lyrics cover dark, metaphysical and occult themes, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy, raw and primitive sound with the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from A God Or An Other and if you are a fan of experimental, post black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "From The Lowest Dungeon, to The Highest Peak" "Unbroken Reign Of Glacial Death" and "Defiled Ossuary". RECOMMENDED BUY.
