Antisoph are a band from Germany that plays a very progressive and avant garde form of black metal and this is a review of their self titled 2018 album which was released by Geisterasche Organisation.
Blast beats along with some fast riffing starts off the album along with some clean avant garde vocals a few seconds later while the riffs also use a great amount of melody and progressive structures as well as the solos and leads also demonstrating a great amount of talent and skill.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while synths are also utilized at times along with the tremolo picking during the faster sections of the songs bringing in elements of black metal and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and as the album progresses more post metal influences are added into the music and acoustic guitars are added onto the closing track.
Antisoph plays a musical style that takes avant garde, progressive and post black metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover philosophical and metaphysical themes.
In my opinion Antisoph are a very great sounding mixture of avant garde, progressive and post black metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hyporoom" "Teleport Maize" and "Rejoice". 8 out of 10.
