Kaamos Warriors are a duo from Finland that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays a very dark, melancholic and symphonic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Shadows Of Northern Chaos" which will be released in November by Inverse Records.
Melodic guitar leads start off the album along with some heavy riffing a few seconds later while the faster sections of the songs also add in a decent amount of blast beats. The riffs also utilize a lot of melody along with the vocals also adding in a good mixture of black metal screams and death metal growls.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them. Symphonic elements are also added into the heavier sections of the music while one song also introduces black'n'roll style riffing onto the album.
Most of the tracks are very short in length with the average being under 3 minutes along with the death metal influences being utilized a lot more than the previous release and as the album progresses a brief use of classical guitars can also be heard. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover melancholy, darkness, winter and night themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording form Kaamos Warriors and if you are a fan of dark, melodic black and death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Chaos Walks The Earth" "Shadows Of Northern Cross" and "Moon And Stars". 8 out of 10.
