Escvro are a solo project from Brazil that plays a nihilistic form of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2015 ep "Os Homens e As Estrelas".
Amplifier noises and reverb's start off the ep before going into more of a raw black metal direction which sees the bass taking over due to the absence of the guitar along with some grim screams and there are also a great amount of morbid sounding melodies and spoken word parts present throughout the recording.
Bass, drums and vocals are the main instruments present on the recording and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats are utilized and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the music being very heavily rooted in the 90's second wave style of the genre.
You can also hear a touch of crust punk and classic metal in the music at times and as the ep progresses field recordings as well as clean playing and synths can also be heard briefly and they also bring in a small amount of ambient elements along with some of the vocals also adding in depressive screams and one of the tracks is very long and epic and length the ep also closes with an instrumental.
Escvro plays a style of black metal that is very raw and nihilistic and also uses bass guitars as the lead instrument in all 4 of the tracks, the production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics are written in Portuguese and cover Nihilism, Existentialism and Misanthropy themes.
In my opinion Escvro are a very great sounding nihilistic black metal project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Entropia" and "Pertante es Estrelas['. 8 out of 10.
