Hor are a duo from Greece that plays a misanthropic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Exitium"which was released by Sanit Mils Records.
Dark soundscapes start off the album before adding in some dark yet melodic guitar leads while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the music more of a raw feeling and the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams.
All of the tracks are also very long and epic in length along with the music also adding in a great amount of 90's influences. Spoken word parts can also be heard briefly while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as the riffs also adding in a small amount of melody at times, all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them and most of the music also sticks to a heavier direction.
Hor plays a style of black metal that is very raw, traditional and misanthropic sounding. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover misanthropy and nihilism themes.
In my opinion Hor are a very great sounding misanthropic black metal duo and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Birth Of Tragedy" and "Time(A Cold Shadow of Death)". 8 out of 10.
