This is a review of an older album from Denmark's Picture Ann which brought in a dungeon synth style with some black metal elements and the album was originally released in 2009 and called "Blaspheme" which will be re-issued later this month by Floodgate Moods Productions.
A very distorted guitar sound along with some ambient style synths start off the album and a good portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and some songs also bring in a small amount of clean playing and drones and all of the tracks sound different from each other.
A decent amount of black metal elements can be heard in some of the guitar riffing while some tracks also bring in a small amount of grim vocals while a great portion of the songs are also instrumental and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style and they also bring in a couple of bonus instrumental tracks and all of the songs stick to a very slow musical direction.
On this recording picture Ann played more of a guitar orientated form of dungeon synth and dark ambient while also mixing in a decent amount of black metal elements, the production sounds very dark yet powerful while lyrics when they are utilized focus more on dark themes..
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Picture Ann and if you are a fan of dark ambient, dungeon synth and black metal, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hide And Seek My Dear" "Fucking Black Again" and "No One X Nothing". 8 out of 10.
