Oscuro Mito are a band from Bolivia that plays a mixture of black and folk metal and this is a review of their 2015 ep "Mientras las nubes ciengan la luna" which was released by Catafila Producciones.
Acoustic guitars and pre-Hispanic folk instruments start off the ep along with some grim black metal screams a few seconds later while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and after awhile the music goes into a heavier direction but also keeping the folk elements.
When the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the music more of a raw feeling while the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style as well as some tribal chants and clean vocals also being used briefly.
Oscuro Mito plays a musical style that takes black metal and mixes it with pre-Hispanic folk music to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Spanish and cover Ancestral Legends, Inca And Aymara Culture and Paganism themes.
In my opinion Oscuro Mito are a very great sounding mixture of folk and black metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Danza en trance". 8 out of 10.
