Dusk are a band from Costa Rica that has been featured before in this zine and plays an industrial form of black metal and this is a review of their album "The Hermit" which will be self released in 2021.
Dark soundscapes start off the album while also introducing programmed beats and industrial elements a few seconds later which also mixes in with the heavier sections of the music. Melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing along with the faster sections also adding in a great amount of programmed blast beats.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams while one of the tracks also introduces spoken word parts onto the recording. The songs also add in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the guitar leads also being done in a very dark style along with some growls also being utilized briefly.
A couple of songs also having brief interludes in between them., a couple of the songs are also very long and epic in length and as the album progresses a brief use of stringed instruments can also be heard along with the music also adding in some atmospheric and dark step touches. The production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics are a concept album involving hermits and desolation themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Dusk and if you are a fan of industrial black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Desolation I" "Desolation III" and "Hermit V".8out of 10.
