This is a review of another recording from Paraguay's Eternal Abyss which was recorded as a solo project but still sticking to a very raw and old school style of black metal and the demo is called "IV" and will be released on cassette in October of 2019 by Dark Ritual.
Clean playing starts off the demo before going into a very fast and raw musical style which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. Vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched black meal screams while the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's style as well as some synths also being used briefly.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. One of the tracks is very long and epic in length while the guitar leads when they are utilized are done in a very dark and melodic style and as the demo progresses clean playing also makes a brief return as well as the riffs also adding in a small amount of depressive sounding melodies.
On this recording Eternal Abyss plays a style of black metal that is very raw and old school but also utilizing synths which makes the demo sound a little bit different from the full length. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover death, misanthropy and darkness themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Eternal Abyss and if you are a fan of raw and old school black metal, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Death And Destruction To This Fucking Humanity" and "Waiting For The End Of Our Cursed Existence". 8 out of 10.
