Fosa are a band from Chile that plays a raw mixture of black metal and crust and this is a review of their 2016 demo which was re-issued in 2018 by Unpleasant Records.
Distorted amp noises starts off the demo before going into a heavier direction while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the vocals are very deep and angry sounding black metal screams and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
When tremolo picking is utilized it gives the songs more of a raw feeling while the music also mixes in elements of crust and d beat along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as some of the riffing also utilizing a small amount of melody and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and as the demo progresses clean playing is added onto the recording and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style and on the closing track harsh noises and power electronics are added into the music.
Fosa plays a musical style that takes black metal and crust and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics a re written in Spanish and cover depression, darkness, chaos and nihilism themes.
In my opinion Fosa are a very great sounding mixture of black metal and crust and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Caza de brujas" and "A la hoguera". 8 out of 10.
