Black Crow King/To Pay The Debt Of Nature/badGod Music/2012 CD Review

Black Crow King are a band from an unknown location that plays a mixture of black metal, doom metal, sludge and experimental music and this is a review of their 2012 album "TO Pay The Debt Of Nature" which was released by badGod Music.

Drum programming when it is utilized range from slow to mid paced beats that are not included on every song, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with slow doom/sludge riffs that dominate throughout the recording, as for the synths when they are utilized they have a very dark ambient and evil sound to them with some harsh noise effects being thrown in at times.

Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced that combine black metal, doom metal and sludge together with a great amount of heavy distortion while the lead guitars when they are utilized are very distorted and noisy sounding guitar solos and leads.

Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams mixed in with some deep blackened growls, while the lyrics cover dark and occult themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.

In my opinion Black Crow King are a very great sounding black metal, doom, sludge, experimental/noise hybrid band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Shadow Falls" "Grotesque Existence" and "Excarnation Ritual". RECOMMENDED BUY.
