Evilfeast are a solo project from Poland that plays a very atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of his 2017 album "Elegies Of The Stellar Wind" which will be released in December by Eisenwald.
Nature orientated soundscapes start off the album along with some atmospheric and epic sounding synths a few seconds later which also bring in elements of ambient and they also mix in with the heavier sections of the music while the vocals are mostly grim black metal screams along with the music also being very heavily rooted in the 90's.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some melodic singing also being utilized at times and when tremolo picking is utilized it gives the songs more of a raw feeling.
All of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some songs also adding on a small amount of acoustic guitars and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and on track also brings in a brief use of operatic choir vocals and one song also brings in a brief use of spoken word parts.
Evilfeast plays a musical style that goes back to the 90's style of Nordic atmospheric black metal, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Occultism, Magick, Darkness, Nature and Misanthropy themes.
In my opinion Evilfeast are a very great sounding atmospheric black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Second Baptism - Shores In Fire And Ice" and "Archaic Magic - A Cenotaph Below The Cursed Moon". 8/5 out of 10.
