Revenant Marquis is a solo project from Wales that plays a very raw and lo-fi form of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2018 album "Pitiless Black Emphasis".
A very dark, raw and lo-fi sound starts off the album along with a great amount of 90's influences while the vocals are mostly grim black metal screams while tremolo picking and blast beats can also be heard during the faster sections of the songs as well as the music also getting ritualistic at times.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark, raw, melodic and old school style while the songs also bring in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some dark sounding melodies being hidden under a lo-fi atmosphere as well as the bass guitars also sounding very powerful and there is also an instrumental track as well as some ambient elements towards the end.
Revenant Marguis plays a style of black metal that is very dark, raw and lo-fi sounding as well as being very different at the same time, the production sounds very rancid and lo-fi while the lyrics cover darkness and evil themes.
In my opinion Revenant Marquis are a very great sounding raw. lo-fi black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Vanishing Into Gutters And Tunnels" and "All That Is Commonly Avowed As Evil". 8 out of 10.
