France's solo project AnKou has returned with a new track which continues his ambient style of black metal and introduces Skyggefigurrer on vocals and this is a review of his self released 2018 singer "HMS Terror".
Ambient orientated soundscapes and synths start off the track and also mix in with the heavier sections of the music while whispers are also used briefly along with the music also mixing in a great amount of grim black metal screams as well as a brief use of death metal growls, the riffs also use a great amount of melody and the solos and leads are done in a very melodic style and when the music speeds up a small amount of blast beats can be heard and towards the end acoustic guitars and clean vocals are utilized.
On this track AnKou remains true to his ambient style of black metal while the vocals of Skyggefigurrer add in a touch of death metal, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding track from AnKou and if you are a fan of ambient black metal, you should check out this single. 8 out of 10.
