Burguli are a solo project from Spain that plays a raw and lo-fi form of ambient black metal and this is a review of his self released 2019 album "Ombres".
A very dark, distorted and lo-fi sound starts off the album along with the vocals being mostly grim sounding black metal screams. A couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and when the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the riffing also adding melody into some parts of the music. When synths are added onto the recording they add elements of ambient into the songs and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
When guitar leads are finally added onto the recording they are done in a very distorted style along with all of the songs sounding very different from each other and as the album progresses a few instrumentals are also added onto the recording as well as a couple of of them being ritualistic ambient tracks. The production sounds very dark, raw and lo-fi while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism, Myths, Darkness and Nature themes.
In my opinion Burguli are a very great sounding raw and lo-fi ambient black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Cries From The Battle" "Where The Wraiths Stalk" "Desciphering The Knowledge of The Ancient" and "Satanas Summum Invocatio". 8 out of 10.
