free EP of black metal: Scáth Na Déithe
Scáth Na Déithe
Free EP of black metal from Ireland; free when last checked on October 7th, 2015.
Even though there is not much information about this project on its Facebook page nor on Metal Archives, for supporters of black metal looking to hear a new band this music could be very enjoyable. It's black metal, but more needs to be said about it. The music sometimes goes at a blasting speed, but that's not the only vibe. Another vibe is a massive black metal heaviness played at doom-ish tempos. In my opinion, this is not doom per se, but it does incorporate melancholy and melody in a good way. The tremolo guitar work sounds very good in the context of the doom atmosphere and heaviness. Also, when I say doom, I do not mean super slow sloth slug lazy chord plucking. It means simply midtempo vibes. Anyway, if you are ready for black metal with a doom twist, with melancholy, look into this music.
