Vger is a solo project from Colorado that plays a mixture of ambient black metal, blackgaze and trip hop and this is a review of his 2019 ep "Kre" which was released by Nailed Nazarene Industries.
Programmed beats start off the ep along with some ambient style synths a few seconds later which also mixes in with the heavier sections of the songs. Vocals are done in mostly an angry yet depressive black metal style while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic shoegaze style.
All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them while the music also brings in a great amount of shoegaze elements. At times the music also gets very atmospheric sounding as well as all of the songs also stick to a slower musical direction.
Vger plays a musical style that takes ambient black metal, shoegaze and trip hop and mixes them together to create a sound of his own. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Vger is a very great sounding mixture of ambient black metal, blackgaze and trip hop and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Kre". 8 out of 10.
