Afsky are a solo project from Denmark t hat consists of a member from Solbrund and plays a very raw, melodic and depressive form of black metal and this is a review of his self titled and self released 2016 ep.
A very raw sound along with tremolo picking starts off the album along with some drum beats a few seconds later that also takes the music into more of a black metal direction while also utilizing blast beats at times and the vocals that are used in the music are grim yet high pitched depressive screams.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and most of the tracks are long and epic in length while the rawness is more close to the 90's second wave style and the solos and leads are done in more of a melodic fashion and after awhile acoustic guitars can be heard in certain sections of the recording along with a brief use of violins while later songs show more melodies being added into the music and all of the musical instruemnts have a very powerful sound to them and elements of doom metal and rock can also be heard at times.
Afsky plays a style of black metal that is very raw and depressive along with a good mixture of both old school and modern elements, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Danish and cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Afsky are a very great sounding raw and depressive black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Et Sidste Farvel". 8 out of 10
