Bogwych is a solo project from the United Kingdom that plays a mixture of experimental, drone, dark ambient blackgaze and doom metal and this is a review of his 2020 album "On The Wind Is All that Is Left" which will be released on January 31st by Trepanation Recordings.
A few seconds of silence starts off the album before adding in some atmospheric sounding drones while both of the tracks are also very long and epic in length. The music also brings in a great amount of noise and experimental elements as well as the recording also capturing an improv atmosphere at times.
The music also has its atmospheric moments along with some drums also being added into some parts of the recording. Spoken word parts, whispers and grim black metal vocals are also added into some parts of the album while elements of sludge and doom metal are also added into the slower sections of the songs.
Dark ambient soundscapes are also added into some parts of the recording as well as some bass guitars also being utilized briefly along with some touches of shoegaze also being utilized when clean guitars are added onto the recording. A small amount of melody can also be heard in some of the riffing and the production sounds very dark.
In my opinion Bofwych is a very great sounding mixture of experimental, drone, dark ambient blackgaze and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. 8 out of 10.
