Fjoergyn are a band from Germany that plays a very symphonic and avant garde form of black metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Monument Ende" which was released by TrollZorn Records.
Drums range from slow to mid paced drumming with some fast playing and blast beats being utilized briefly, while the synths bring a very dark, atmospheric, symphonic and avant garde to the recording, as for the bass playing it has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine symphonic sounding and melodic black metal with avant garde and experimental together t o create a sound of their own with some soft and clean playing being utilized at times, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding avant garde black metal guitar solos and leads, as for the classical guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking and full chords to enhance the avant garde elements of the music.
Vocals range from grim sounding black metal screams, deep growls and clean singing male and female vocals as well as a brief use of spoken word parts, while the lyrics are written in a mixture of German and English and cover nature, mythology and anti christian themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound with some of the songs being long and epic in length and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Fjoergyn are a very great sounding melodic, symphonic and avant garde black metal band and if you are a f an of this musical genre, you should check out this album> RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Betonlethargie" "Thanotos" "Sin" and "Monument Ende". RECOMMENDED BUY.
