Perihelion are a band from Hungary that has been featured before in this zine and plays an avant garde form of post black metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Hold" which was released by Apathia Records.
Atmospheric synths and clean playing start off the ep along with some melodic vocals a few seconds later and after awhile heavy guitars make their presence known on the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of both clean and heavy parts and the solos and leads also add in elements of post metal.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and the songs also mix in some influences from some of the mid 90's Norwegain avant garde black metal bands while not using any aggressive vocals from that era and when guitar solos and leads are brought onto the recording they bring in even more of a melodic style to the bands musical sound and acoustic guitars are also used briefly while all of the songs stick to a very slow musicla direction and they close the ep with a cover of Twin Peaks "Scyamore Trees".
Perihelion focus less on the black metal elements this time around and focuses more on an avant garde style of post metal on this recording, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Hungarian and cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Perihelion and if you are a fan of avant garde, post metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Feneketlen" and "Hold". 8 out of 10.
