Costin Chioreanu is a solo artist from Romania that plays an experimental form of avant garde music and this is a review of his 2015 album "The Quest For A Morning Star" which was released by Avantgarde Music.
Dark sounding synths start off the album along with some experimental elements and the music also gets very atmospheric at times and also mixes in a great dose of dark ambient and there are also some melodic guitar leads being added into some parts of the songs while the rhythm guitars enhance the avant garde feeling of the tracks.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and there is also a good amount of violins in some of the songs and they have an early 90's gothic/doom metal feeling to them while some of the leads also add in a touch of post rock and as the album progresses spoken word parts can be heard for a few seconds.
Some of the guitars also adding in a touch of black metal as well as a brief use of grim screams and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and every song sounds different from each other and they there are also quests such as David Tibet and members of Mayhem, Sigh and Aura Noir and one track also brings in a brief use of clean singing.
Costin Chioreanu plays a musical style that is mostly avant garde and experimental while the metal influence is present in some of the tracks and most of the songs are instrumental and the production has a very dark and powerful sound.
In my opinion Costin Chioreanu plays a great mixture of experimental and avant garde music and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo artist. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "An Empire Beneath Oblivion" and "Outside The great Circle". 8 out of 10.
