DSKNT are a solo project from Switzerland that plays a very abstract, experimental and avant garde form of black metal and this is a review of his 2017 album :PhSPHR Entropy" which will be released on cassette in December by Sentient Ruin Laboratories.
A very fast and dissonant sound starts off the album while the tremolo picking and blast beats gives the songs more of a raw feeling along with the vocals being mostly deep yet grim black metal screams and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length as well as utilizing a great amount of distorted melodies.
At times the music gets very technical while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the music also bringing in a decent amount of avant garde and experimental elements and when solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic fashion and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and at times the vocals also add in a touch of bestial black/death metal.
DSKNT plays a style of black metal that is very abstract, dissonant, experimental and avant garde sounding while also having its raw moments and also mixing in influences from the French style of the genre, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover darkness, occultism and alchemy themes.
In my opinion DSKNT are a very great sounding abstract, experimental, dissonant and avant garde black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this cassette. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "S.O.P.O.R" and "PhSPHR Entropy". 8 out of 10.
