Kolga/Demo/Lundr Records/2012 EP Review - 87%

LokiEvil, February 25th, 2012

Kolga are a band from Michigan that plays a form of post black metal mixd with some dark and doom metal influences and this is a review of their 2012 Demo which was released by Lundr Records.

Drums range from slow to mid paced drumming with only a small amount of fast playing and blast beats , while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars, as for the synths which are only utilized briefly they being a very dark, atmospheric and pagan sound to the music.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast post black metal riffs that also utilize influences from shoegaze, dark and doom metal with a great amount of dark sounding melodies that gives the music a very progressive sound mixed in with some clean playing while still retaining the raw and primitive nature of the genre while the lead guitars bring an ambient/shoegaze feeling to the music with alot of weird distorted effects.

Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams mixed in with some clean singing vocals, while the lyrics cover dark and pagan themes, as for the production it has a very dark and heavy sound to it.

In my opinion Kolga are a very great dark and atmospheric sounding post black metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Out Of The Wood". RECOMMENDED BUY.
