Dreamcarcher are a band from Norway that plays a blackened form of progressive metal and this is a review of t heir 2019 album "The Bond" which will be released on September 27th by Indie Recordings.
A very heavy and avant garde sound starts off the album along with some clean playing a few seconds alter while the heavy riffs are very heavily rooted in prog metal. Clear vocals can also be heard in certain sections of the recording as well as some black metal s creams also being used at times.
When t he music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard while the riffs also add in a great amount of melody. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style as well as the music also getting very experimental and avant garde at times.
Acoustic guitars can also be heard in certain sections of the recording as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to t hem, psychedelic elements can also be heard in certain sections of the recording, the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and as the album progresses keyboards can also be heard briefly. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover a small industrial town surrounded by majestic nature, fjords and glaciers.
In my opinion Dreamcarcher are a very great sounding blackened progressive metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Coal" "From Which We Came" and "Dominance". 8 out of 10.
