Ossaert are a duo from the Netherlands that plays a very savage and rabid from of black metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Bedenhuis" which will be released in February by Argento Records.
A very fast and raw sound starts off the album along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. All of the musical instruments on the recording h ave a very powerful sound to them while the solos and leads are done in a very dark, melodic and atmospheric style.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the vocals are mostly tortured sounding black metal screams which range from deep to high. Clean singing can also be heard in some parts of the recording as well as the riffs also utilizing a decent amount of melody.
Most of the tracks are also very long and epic in length along with one track also adding in a small amount of distorted drones and the songs also add in a good mixture of both old school and modern influences. The production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover dark and mysterious themes.
In my opinion Ossaert are a very great sounding savage and rabid black metal duo and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "I' and "IV". 8 out of 10.
