Yonder are a band from Germany that plays a mixture of black metal and crust and this is a review of their 2019 ep "Temple Of Eyes" which was released by Wooaaargh.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the ep while the music also mixes in a great amount of crust punk and d beat elements. All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them along with the vocals being mostly high pitched black metal screams 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.
A great amount of cascadian influences can be heard in the bands musical style along with the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and elements of doom metal can also be heard in the slower sections of the music and the tracks also add in a good amount of post rock touches.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very atmospheric and melodic style as well as the riffs also adding in a great amount of melody and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Yonder are a very great sounding mixture of black metal and crust and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Temple Of Eyes". 8 out of 10.
