Twisted Mist are a band from France that plays a pagan form of folk metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Orbios" which will be released in November by Music-Records.
Nature sounds start off the album along with some folk instruments a few seconds later while tribal beats can also be heard briefly while the folk elements also mix in with the heavier sections of the songs. The riffs also add in a great amount of melody along a lot of t he vocals also being done in a clean pagan style.
Grim sounding black metal screams are also utilized at times while whispered vocals can also be heard in certain sections of the recording. One of the tracks is also an instrumental along with the guitar leads also being done in a melodic style when they are used briefly as well as some of the tracks also being very long and epic in length, all of the tracks also stick to either a slow or mid tempo style.
Twisted Mist plays a musical style that takes folk music and melodic pagan black metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in French and cover Paganism themes.
In my opinion Twisted Mist are a very great sounding pagan folk metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Matir" "Finis Vitae" and "Orbios". 8 out of 10.
