Dimholt are a band from Bulgaria that plays a very psychedelic form of black metal with elements of death metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 album "Liberation Funeral".
A very fast and raw black metal sound along with blast beats and melodies start off the album along with some grim vocals which have a deeper edge to them and after awhile the band starts bringing in a mixture of mid paced and fast parts as well as adding in some death metal growls and bringing that influence into the riffing along with some more progressive structures and when they add in clean vocals the album starts evoking a more avant garde feeling.
On the other tracks the black metal sound is the most dominant part of the recording and the band brings in a mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts to make the music more diverse along with some melodic guitar leads and the band also starts adding in more psychedelic structures into the music and also mix it in with a good amount of old school black metal influences as well as adding in both clean and heavy parts.
As the album progresses the music gets more diverse mixing both modern and old school black metal sounds together and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and some of the catchier parts of the guitar riffing have a black'n'roll feeling to them at times, on some of the tracks spoken word parts and whispers are brought in briefly.
Dimholt create a very interesting sound with their music bringing in psychedelic elements but with guitars and making them heavier and bringing in a true black metal sound to mix them with as well as some avant garde and death metal element s which make the music sound very original, the production sound s very powerful and the lyrics cover death, darkness and Armageddon themes.
In my opinion Dimholt are a very great sounding psychedelic black metal band with elements of death metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Blindead" "Chaos Reborn" "Ruins" and "Theodicy". 8 out of 10.
