Iscuron are a solo project from Italy that plays an atmospheric, medieval and symphonic form of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2021 album "The Nothing Has Destroyed Atreyu".
Tragic sounding keyboards start off the album and also add an influence of classical music onto the recording along with some symphonic elements which also mixes in with the heavier sections of the songs. All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them while the vocals are mostly grim black metal screams.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats and tremolo picking can also be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling. Melodies are also added into a lot of the guitar riffing along with the tracks also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
A couple of the tracks are also long and epic in length along with the music also having its medieval moments. At times the songs also gets very atmospheric sounding as well as some electronic instruments also being added into some parts of the recording, spoken word parts can also be heard briefly and the tracks also add in some 90's influences but keeps it modern at the same time and as the album progresses melodic guitar solos and leads can also b e heard. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover fantasy and medieval themes.
In my opinion Iscuron are a very great sounding atmospheric, medieval and symphonic black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Silent Storm" "The Nothing has Destroyed Atreyu" and "In the Darkness". 8 out of 10.
