France's AnKou has returned with a new song which is in more of an atmospheric direction and features Tahazu and this is a review of his self released 2019 single "Confessions Of Purgatory".
Clean playing starts off the track along with a mixture of clear vocals and grim black metal screams a few seconds later which also takes the music into a heavier direction. The riffs also add in a decent amount of melody as well as some spoken word parts also being used briefly, melodic guitar solos are also used in some parts and the music and during the faster sections of the song blast beats can also be heard.
On this track AnKou brings in more of a melodic and atmospheric style of black metal with a touch of death metal. The production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding track from AnKou and if you are a fan of atmospheric black emtal, you should check out this single. 8 out of 10.
