Chiral are a band from Italy that plays a very progressive and melodic form of black/death metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 demo "Winter Eternal".
The ep starts out with a very heavy and melodic sound along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful along with some deep death metal growls and a few seconds later solos and leads become a part of the demo along with some prog elements as well as a mixture of clean and heavy parts.
Later on spoken word parts are added into certain parts of the recording and when the demo goes into the second song the music starts getting more black metal influenced while still having a very heavy dose of death metal in the music and later on acoustic guitars are brought in briefly before speeding up and adding in blast beats and black metal screams and the last track is an outro that is all done on keyboards and it also brings in a very dark, atmospheric and symphonic feeling.
With this demo Chiral take a progressive form of death metal and mixes it in with melodic black metal and prog elements to create their own sound along with a dark lyrical content that also deals with winter and nature themes and a heavy yet raw demo production.
In my opinion Chiral are a very great sounding melodic and progressive black/death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Eternal Winter Day". 8 out of 10.
