Maudiir is a solo project from Montreal, Quebec, Canada that plays a melodic mixture of black, death and thrash metal and this is a review of his self released 2020 ep "Le Temps Peste".
A very fast sound with blast beats starts off the ep while also introducing melodic guitar leads onto the recording. Vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams along with the riffs also adding in a decent amount of melody and traditional metal influences and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
Tremolo picking can also be heard in some of the fast riffing while clean playing can also be heard briefly. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the music also adding in some elements of death, thrash metal and punk, clean playing can also be heard briefly on a couple of tracks and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts on the closing song.
Maudiir plays a musical style that takes black, melodic death, thrash and traditional metal and mixes them together to create a sound of his own. The production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover consumer society, religion, science going awry, addiction to technology and environmental decay themes.
In my opinion Maudiir are a very great sounding melodic mixture of black, death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out t his ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Product" and "Snakes Of Creation". 8 out of 10.
