Fless are a solo project from Canada that plays a very raw and old school form of black metal and this is a review of his 2017 album "Volume I" which will be re-issued on October 21st by Lunar Apparitions.
A very dark and lo-fi sound sound starts off the album along with some grim yet high pitched black metal s creams a few seconds later while demonic growls can also be heard at times. A lot of the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's style along with the riffs also adding in a small amount of dark sounding melodies.
When tremolo picking is utilized it also gives the songs more of a raw feeling while a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length. Whispered vocals can also be hear d in some parts of the music along with some blast beats being utilized when the music speeds up and most of the music sticks to a mid tempo direction, one track is also a very ritualistic sounding instrumental and on the closing track clean playing and spoken word parts can also be heard briefly.
Fless plays a style of black metal that is very raw and old school sounding. The production sounds vert, dark, r aw and lo-fi while the lyrics cover traditional witchcraft, vampirism, blood rites and self hatred themes.
In my opinion Fless are a very great sounding raw and old school black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out t his re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Orgy Of Vampires" "Raped on The Altar" and "Moonlit Fornication". 8 out of 10.
