Skiddaw are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a raw form of occult black metal and this is a review of their self titled ep which will be released by SixSixSix Music.
Rain and weather sounds start off the ep before going into a melodic black metal direction along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful and a guitar lead and after the intro the music starts getting more heavy along with some grim sounding black metal screams and the music sticks to mostly a mid paced direction.
On the 3rd track the music starts going for a more fast and raw black metal direction along with some blast beats before going into a slower direction which adds an evil atmosphere to the music along with a small amount of death metal growls and dark sounding melodies and the last track starts out very fast before going into a more mid paced direction while it still also has its fast moments and blast beats.
Skiddaw adds a lot of diversity into their raw occult black metal sound with every track having a different sound to it, the production sounds very professional and the lyrics cover the Mythology of Cunbria and Demonology.
In my opinion Skiddaw are a very great sounding raw occult black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Skiddaw Towers" and "Even Titans Fall". 8 out of 10.
