Draagyn is a solo artist from Los Angeles, California that has had music reviewed before in this zine and on this recording goes for more of an avant garde and experimental mixture of black and doom metal and this is a review of her self released 2022 ep "Bent Rib".
A very dark, heavy and avant garde starts off the ep along with some clear vocals a few seconds later. Keyboards can also be heard at times while melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing as well as some whispers and spoken word parts also being used briefly and the music also has its experimental moments.
Elements of doom metal can also be heard in the slower sections of the songs while melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing. Black metal screams are also utilized quite a bit throughout the recording along with all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them, when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style, the whole ep also sticks to a slower direction and clean playing can also be heard on the closing track..
On this recording Draagyn takes avant garde black and doom metal and takes them into more of an experimental direction. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover beauty and decay themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Draagyn and if you are a fan of experimental, avant garde black and doom metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Beating heart Cadaver". 8 out of 10.
