This is a review of a split album between Germany's [ BOLT ] and Lavas Magmas which was released by dunk! records and we will start off the review with [ BOLT ] who move from a blackened drone doom metal style to more of an instrumental ambient drone style with their track
Their side of the split starts out with some atmospheric sounding drones while their track is also over 10 minutes in length. All of the music is instrumental along with some elements of ambient being added into some parts of the song and the track also avoids the black and doom metal influences of previous releases.
Next up is Lavas Magmas a solo project that plays a mixture of noise and industrial.
His side of the split starts out with some atmospheric sounding drones while field recordings can also be heard in the background. his track is all instrumental along with the track being over 10 minutes in length and the song also adds in elements of noise and industrial and the music also gets more diverse as the song progresses.
On the closing track [ BOLT ] and Lavas Magmas team up together and mix both of their very different style together.
Their side of the split starts out with some atmospheric sounding drones while the track is over 20 minutes in length and an instrumental. Field recordings can also be heard at times along with some elements of ambient and as the tracks progresses the music also starts adding in elements of black and doom metal.
In conclusion i feel this is a very great sounding split and would recommend it to all fans of black, doom metal, drone, noise, experimental and ambient. 8 out of 10.
