Charming Timur are a one band band that plays a mixture of post black metal, sludge, alternative and nu metal and this is a review of his self released 2014 album "A Brief Moment Of Existence".
Distorted noises start off the album along with some alternative metal style riffing and a few seconds later grim black metal screams are added into the music and you can also hear some post rock melodies being utilized in the background which are also added into the solos and leads on the recording.
As the album progresses elements of nu metal find their way onto the album and experimental sounds and clean singing are added into certain sections of the recording which also gives the album a more avant garde feeling and the music also starts adding in heavy doom and sludge metal parts with the more melodic side of the music that is presented on the tracks.
There are also a good amount of industrial elements being utilized on the album at times as well as a few seconds of harsh noises and the vocals also start to get more deep and depressive on some of the later tracks along with traces of ambient drone and on some of the later songs the music starts adding in more post rock and shoegaze sounds.
Charming Timur combines a variety of many different musical style in his music while the main influence is black metal you can also hear elements of sludge, nu metal, alternative and post rock throughout all of the tracks which also makes the music sound very original and satand out on its own, the production sounds very powerful doe being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Charming Timur are a very great and original sounding post black metal project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "OCD" "My Pain" "Ego Machine" and "All The Same". 8 out of 10.
