This is a review of another recording from Black Claw that continues the mixture of black country and death roots of previous recordings with the 7 inch being self released in 2015 and called "Sinking Claws".
Acoustic and steel guitars start off the ep giving the music an Americana feeling while the clean vocals and a touch of goth rock to the recording and after awhile the music starts having more of a neo folk feeling and the vocals also start to get more dark and grim.
On the second track the acoustic guitars start adding in more open notes and you can also hear whistling before the vocals start to kick in and the music is more dark and depressive and adds in an atmosphere that you would expect to hear an either a Nick Cave or acoustic era Swans album but done with more of a country influence.
Black Claw creates 2 tracks that are very dark and depressive and while the black and death metal influences can be heard briefly the music focuses more on a darker style of folk and country music, the production sounds for dark and raw while the lyrics cover depressive themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding from Black Claw and if you are a fan of neo-folk or the darker side of country and Americana music, you should check out this 7 inch. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Hole In My Head". 8 out of 10.
