Perihelion are a band from Hungary that plays a mixture of post rock and avant garde black metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Zeng" which was released by Apathia Records.
A very dark and atmospheric ambient sound starts off the album along with some distorted guitars that also bring in drones before going into a very melodic post metal direction and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording along with soem clean singing vocals.
After the vocals kick in the music goes into a very fast black metal direction that also utilizes a great amount of blast beats and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with a great amount of melodic guitar leads along with a touch of shoegaze and the music is perfectly balance between both clean and heavy parts and you can also hear a lot of avant garde metal elements in the bands musical style and in some of the faster parts a brief use of black metal screams can be heard.
Perihelion plays a musical style that takes the mid 90's avant garde black metal style while focusing more on a regular style of singing and mixing it in with a more modern style of post rock to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Hungarian and cover spiritual and cosmic journey themes.
In my opinion Perihelion are a very great sounding mixture of avant garde black metal and post rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tundockles" "Vegtelen Kek" and "Hajad Szel". 8 out of 10.
