Irreverent Witness are a solo project from the United States that plays a very raw and depressive form of black metal and this is a review of his 2019 album "The grandest Death" which was released by Share Your Pain Records.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album while all of the tracks are also very long and epic in length. All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the solos and leads are done in a very dark and melodic style and vocals are mostly high pitched yet depressive black metal screams.
The riffs also add in a decent amount of melody along with some clean playing also being heard on some of the tracks. When the music speeds up a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can also be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling as well as the album also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Irreverent Witness plays a style of black metal that is very raw and depressive sounding, The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover darkness, death and depression themes.
In my opinion Irreverent Witness are a very great sounding raw and depressive black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "No World Left" and "Praying For An Asteroid". 8 out of 10.
