Earthly Form are a duo from Finland that plays a very raw form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2020 demo "Crushing The Wheel".
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the ep before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams along with the riffs also adding in a great amount of melody and the music is also very heavily rooted in the Finnish style.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the solos and leads are also done in a very raw and melodic style. The songs also add in a great amount of 90's era second wave influences and all of the music also sticks to a heavier musical direction.
Earthly Form plays a style of black metal that is very fast and raw and the Finnish tradition. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Earthly Form are a very great sounding raw black metal duo and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACK "The Beauty Of The World". 8 out of 10.
