Velvet Robe/Bartzabel's Fore/Versina Restis/2012 7 Ich Review


  This  is  another  review  of  a  recording  from  Velvet  Robe  which  continue  their  drone,  occult  and  funeral  doom  metal  hybrid  with  the  7  inch  being  called  "Bartzabel's  Fire"  which  was  released  by  Versina  Pestis  in  the  year  of  2012.

  Drums  are  all  slow  playing  with  no  fast  playing  or  blast  beats  being  present  on  this  recording,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  strong  and  powerful  sound  with  heavy  riffing  that  dominates  throughout  the  recording,  as  for  the  synths  which  are  only  used  briefly  they  bring  a  very  dark  and  occult  sound  to  the  recording.

  Rhythm  guitars  are  all  slow  riffs  that  combine  drone  and  funeral  doom  metal  together  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own  with  a  great  amount  of  heavy  distortion  being  thrown  into  the  riffing  and  there  are  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  present  on  this  recording.

  Vocals  range  from  deep  demonic  growls,  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  and  spoken  word  samples,  while  the  lyrics  cover  darkness  and  occultism  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  heavy,  raw  and  primitive  sound  to  it  while  you  can  still  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  this  recording.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Velvet  Robe  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of drone  and  funeral  doom  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  7  inch.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Bartzabel's  Fire".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
