Eregore are a solo project from Ogden, Utah that plays a mixture of war, black, death meta; and grindcore and this is a review of his 2020 compilation ep "Thought Form" which will be released in October by Sentient Ruin Laboratories and consists of unreleased and demo tracks.
A very fast, raw and brutal war metal sound starts off the compilation which also uses a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking while also mixing in some elements of mid 80's to early 90's era grindcore and the vocals also add in a mixture of black emtal screams and death emtal growls.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very chaotic yet old school style while the songs also add in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. Some of the tracks are also very short in length along with some of the riffing also adding in a small amount of dark sounding melodies as well as one of the tracks also adding in a small amount of experimental soundscapes and the main focus is on a very raw, brutal and heavy style, spoken word samples can also be heard on the closing track.
Eregore plays a musical style that takes war, black, death metal and grindcore and mixes them together to create a sound of his own. The production sounds very dark, raw and lo-fi while the lyrics cover occultism and darkness themes.
In my opinion Eregore are a very great sounding mixture of war, black, death metal and grindcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Astrotheology" and "Thought Form". 8 out of 10.
