Flora are a solo project from Chile that plays an atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2020 album "II".
Clean playing starts off the album before going into a heavier musical direction while all of the tracks are also very long and epic in length. When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling along with the vocals being mostly high pitched black metal screams.
At times the vocals also sound like they are also mixed down low in the mix while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. Melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing along with the solos and leads also being done in a very atmospheric yet melodic style as well as all of the musical instruments on the recording also having a very powerful sound to them, all of the tracks also sound very different from each other.
Flora plays a style of black metal that is very atmospheric sounding yet very aggressive at the same time. The production sounds very dark and r aw while the lyrics cover melancholic and nature orientated themes.
In my opinion Flora are a very great sounding atmospheric black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Stream of Subconsciousness" and "The Ebb And The Flow Of Aeons". 8 out of 10.
