Viter are a band from Ukraine that started as a hybrid of folk and black metal but evolved into a more folk, alternative, industrial, rock metal band with this recording and this is a review of their 2012 album "Springtime" which was released by Metalism Records.
Drums range from slow to mid paced drumming with not much in the way of fast playing and blast beats, while the folk instruments and synths bring an atmospheric, folk, alternative and industrial sound to the music, as for the bass playing it has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from to mid paced riffs that combines folk, industrial, rock, alternative and metal to create a sound of their own along with a great amount of melody being thrown into the riffing as well as a brief use of soft and clean playing and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use full chords to give the music a more medieval sound.
Vocals are all clean singing folk metal singing with no growls or screams being present on t his recording, while the lyrics cover darkness and nature themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
in my opinion Viter are a very great sounding hybrid of folk, metal, rock, alternative and industrial and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Night Is So Moonlit" "Springtime" "Cold And Frozen" and "Two Colors". RECOMMENDED BUY.
