Ainsoph are a band from the Netherlands that plays post black metal with elements of avant garde, post punk. progressive music and jazz and this is a review of their album "Ω - V" which will be released in 2020 by Wolves of Hades.
Heavy riffing starts off the album while the vocals are all done in a very clean and ethereal style along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic post metal style.Elements of shoegaze can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and all of the musical instruments sound very powerful.
The riffs also add in a decent amount of melody along with the music also adding in some touches of post punk. When the music speeds up on a couple of tracks a decent amount of blast beats and tremolo picking can be heard as well as some synths also being utilized briefly
At times the music also has its its progressive moments as well as mixing in elements of jazz. One track is an instrumental and also introduces clean playing onto the recording along with a couple of the songs also being very long and epic in length, spoken word parts are also added onto the closing track. The production sounds very professional while t he lyrics cover Occultism, Kaballah and Darkness themes.
In my opinion Ainsoph are a very great sounding post black metal band with some elements of avant garde, post punk. progressive music and jazz and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Malkuth" "The Long And Self-Destructive Road" and "Maggot brain". 8 out of 10.
