This is a review of another recording from Italy's Eremite which continues the black, sludge and post metal mixture of the previous material and the album is called "All Things Merge into One" and was released by Taxi Driver Records.
Aggressive screams start off the album along with a very heavy sound also kicking in and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats and melodic riffs can be heard giving the music more of a black metal feeling and atmospheric sounds can also be heard in the background at times.
Elements of post metal and hardcore can be heard in some parts of the songs and the music also brings in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and clean and acoustic guitars are also utilized at times and all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording have a very powerful sound to them.
Most of the songs are very long and epic in length and the fast riffs also use a great amount of tremolo picking and when keyboards a re utilized they add in a touch of classical music while also having a powerful presence on the instrumental tracks and one song brings in a brief use of melodic guitar leads and clean singing is also added onto the last track.
Eremite show a great amount of progression on the recording adding in shorter songs and also letting the atmospheric black and post metal elements have more of a powerful effect while the sludge and doom metal influences are still a very dominant part of the recording, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Eremite and if you are a fan of black, sludge and post metal, you should enjoy t his album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Past Became My Future" and "Bowing To The Mountain". 8 out of 10.
