Skyggefigurrer are a solo project from Michigan that plays an atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2017 album "Selvtitulerte".
An acoustic guitar intro starts off the album before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also utilizes a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while the vocals range from grim growls to high pitched black metal screams along with some clean vocals also being used at times.
When synths are utilized they give the music more of an atmospheric feeling while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic style as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and acoustic guitars also appear on some of the other tracks, psychedelic elements are also utilized at times and the album also brings in a great amount of acoustic instrumentals.
Skyggefigurrer plays a style of black metal that is very raw and atmospheric along with some psychedelic and death metal elements, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Satanism, Luciferian and Anti Christian themes.
In my opinion Skyggefigurrer 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 "Henrykklelse" "Trolose" and "Lognen som dutror". 8 out of 10.
