Call Of The Red Forest is a solo project from Greece that plays an instrumental form of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2018 ep "Tell Your Fears".
Rain and thunder sounds start off the ep along with some field recordings a few seconds later before adding in a brief use of acoustic guitars while the guitar solos and leads are done in a very distorted yet melodic style as well as some the tremolo picking giving the songs more of a raw feeling.
All of the music is instrumental while the riffs also add in a decent amount of melody along with all of the drum beats being programmed as well as most of the tracks being very short in length with the average being around 2 minutes and the tracks also add in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and as the ep progresses synths and classical guitars are added onto the recording..
Call Of The Forest plays a style of black metal that is all instruemntal and diverse while also having its raw moments and mixing in some acoustic and classical guitars and the production sounds very dark, raw and lo-fi sounding.
In my opinion Call Of The Red Forest are a very great sounding instrumental black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tenebris" Ritual" and "Black Attack". 8 out of 10.
