Over The Voids are a solo project from Poland that has had music reviewed before in this zine and on this recording plays an old school form of black metal and this is a review of his 2020 album "Hadal" which will be released on August 20th by Nordvis Produktion.
An acoustic guitar intro starts off the album while clean vocals can also be heard briefly before going into a heavier direction. When the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling and melodies are also added into some of the riffing.
Vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams while the music is also very heavily rooted in the 90's era. Throughout the album you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with clean vocals also making a return in certain sections of the recording.
At times the vocals also add in some angry sounding shouts along with all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them as well as the guitar solos and leads being done in a very dark yet melodic style when they are finally utilized and as the album progresses a brief use of choir vocals can also be heard, acoustic guitars also make a return on the closing track. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover dark, metaphysical and occult themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Over the Voids and if you are a fan of old school black emtal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "One Commandment" "Witchfuck" and "A Tribe With No Mythology". 8 out of 10.
