This is a review of another recording from Frostbitten with the musical style this time being an atmospheric form of post black metal with the ep being self released in 2012 and called "A Famine For The Soul".
"Solitude" begins with some soft acoustic guitar playing which utilize full chords and a couple of minutes later slow black metal guitar riffs and drums become a part of the song while also keeping around the acoustic guitars and 2 minute later the music goes back to acoustics only and they utilize finger picking this time around and then the song gets heavy again along with some atmospheric elements as well as the riffing utilizing some melody and the song closes with a mixture of electric and acoustic guitars.
"A Famine For The Soul" begins with some slow guitar riffs and a minute later drums and grim sounding black metal vocals become a part of the song and as the song moves on the guitars start utilizing some melody along with the music going into a more mid paced and primitive direction before returning to a slower direction and adding in depressive elements along with some doom influences a few seconds later, towards the end acoustic guitars make their presence known while utilizing both finger picking and full chords which also close the song.
"My Blood Shall Freeze, As I Witness My Inevitable Demise" begins with some acoustic guitars and melodic black metal guitar riffing and a minute later the riffing starts utilizing some heavier parts and a few minutes later it goes into a more fast and primitive direction along with some blast beats for awhile before getting soft with some acoustic guitars which utilize some finger picking and full chords and staying in this direction for a few minutes before getting more heavy and depressive sounding but you can still hear some clean playing in the background which also closes the ep.
Song lyrics cover depressive themes, while the production has a very dark, raw and primitive sound with the bass guitars being mixed down low in the mix as well as the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Frostbitten and if you are a fan of primitive, atmospheric, post black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Solitude". RECOMMENDED BUY.
