The Sun Through A Telescope are a 1 man project from Canada that plays a mixture of black metal, drone, noise and sludge and this is a review of their elf released 2011 ep "Summer Darkyard".
Drums are absent from t his recording, while the sound effects bring in a psychedelic, drone, noise and dark ambient sound to the music, as for the bass playing it has a very strong and powerful tone with sludge/doom metal riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars are slow to mid paced riffs that combine black metal with noise, sludge and doom metal with the songs being very long and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they bring a post rock sound to the music.
Vocals are a mixture of high pitched black metal screams, deep growls, weird vocals, clean singing and spoken word parts, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion The Sun Through A Telescope are a very great sounding black metal/doom/sludge/noise/drone hybrid and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Cro-Magnon Nightmare". RECOMMENDED BUY.
