Argesk are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a very majestic, atmospheric, melodic and keyboard laden form of black metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Realm Of Eternal Night" which will be released in April by Clobber Records.
A very dark sounding intro starts off the album along with some keyboards a few seconds later which also mixes in with the heavier sections of the songs. The riffs are also done in a very melodic yet heavy style while the vocals bring in a mixture of deep death metal growls and high pitch pitched black metal screams.
A lot of the music is also very heavily rooted in the 90's era while the vocals also have their grim moments. During the faster sections of the songs you can also hear a decent amount of blast beats and tremolo picking which also gives the music more of a raw feeling and the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic style.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as one track introducing a brief use of melodic vocals onto the recording and as the album progresses clean playing can also be heard briefly. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism, Darkness and Anti Christianity themes.
In my opinion Argesk are a very great sounding majestic, atmospheric, melodic and keyboard laden black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Adversary" and 'Liberari In Tenebrae". 8/5 out of 10.
