Watashi Dake are a musical project from Transylvania, Romania that plays an experimental form of black metal and this is a review of their 2020 demo "Feral" which will be released in October by Inferna Profundis Records.
Heavy guitar riffing starts off the demo while the faster sections of the songs also add in a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the music more of a raw feeling. Vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams that also get deep sounding at times along with all of the drum beats also being programmed.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while synths are also mixed in with the heavier sections of the music. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very dark yet melodic style along with the music also having its experimental moments.
Voices can also be heard in the background at times along with all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them as well as most of the tracks being very long and epic in length, psychedelic elements can also be heard at times and the demo also closes with a cover of Dead Kennedy's "Nazi Punks Fuck Off". The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover philosophical themes.
In my opinion Watashi Dake are a very great sounding experimental black metal project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Feral II". 8 out of 10.
