Neos Gheron are a duo from Italy that plays a mixture of black metal and dungeon synth and this is a review of their 2018 album "Potius Nihil, Potius Desultus" which was released by Masked Dead Records.
A very epic synth sound starts off the album and also captures the atmosphere of a fantasy fil while the vocals are mostly grim black metal screams along with some battle sounds also being added into the background at times as well as the music also mixing in elements of dungeon and neo-classical.
Some of the tracks are very long and epic in length while no traditional instruments are ever utilized in any of the songs along with the songs bringing in a variety of many different sounding keys as well as some soundscapes also being used at times and the music also has its symphonic moments, background voices can also be heard briefly and as the album progresses there is also a brief use of clean vocals and some tracks also add in programmed drum beats.
Neos Gheron plays a musical style that takes black metal and dungeon synth and mixes it together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very dark while the lyrics are written in Italian and cover medieval themes.
In my opinion Neos Gheron are a very great sounding mixture of black metal and dungeon synth and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this duo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Potius Nihil... Potius Deseltus (Act. I) Ars Falsarum Imaginium Extintarum (Act. II)" and "Subdecti Nostras Memorias Nequitunt Laedere Inferiores". 8 out of 10.
