Adaestuo are an international band with members from Belgium, Poland, Finland and U.S.A that plays a mixture of raw black metal, experimental and dark ambient and this is a review of their 2018 album "Krew Za Krew" which will be released in December by W.T.C Productions.
A very dark and avant garde sound starts off the album before going into a heavier direction while clean vocals can also be heard briefly along with the faster sections of the songs bringing in a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which gives the music more of a raw feeling.
High pitched black metal screams are also a very huge part of the recording while the music also brings in experimental and ambient elements at times along with the music also capturing a ritualistic atmosphere in some parts of the recording as well as some of the tracks being very long and epic in length.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the guitar leads are done in a very dark, raw and melodic style along with the spoken word parts giving the songs more of a ritualistic feeling when they are utilized and the music gets very diverse at times.
Adaestuo plays a musical style that takes black metal, dark ambient and experimental and mixes them together to create something very original, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover darkness, death, occultism and esoteric themes.
In my opinion Adaeusto are a very great sounding mixture of black metal, experimental and dark ambient and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Red Moon" "Subterranean Fire" "Shadow Pilgrimage" and "Krew Za Krew". 8/5 out of 10.
