K.F.R are a solo project from France that plays a mixture of occult black metal and dark ambient and this is a review of his 2018 album "Ad Manifestationem Diaboli" which was released by Purity Through Fire.
Dark ambient style synths start off the album which also mix into the heavier sections of the music at times while the vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams along with the riffs also adding in a decent amount of melody and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling while the songs also add in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as the solos and leads being done in a very raw and chaotic style when they are utilized, clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and one track also adds in a small amount of melodic vocals and there is also a cover of Mutiilation's "Through The Funeral Maelstorm Of Evil".
K.F.R plays a musical style that takes a very raw form of occult black metal and mixes it with dark ambient to create a sound of his own, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Dajjal, Occultism, Religion, and Sorrow themes.
In my opinion K.F.R are a very great sounding mixture of occult black metal and dark ambient and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Darkness And Pain" "Through The Funeral Maelstorm Of Evil" and "Here i Crawl". 8 out of 10.
