This is another review of a recording from South Carolina's Distorted Cognitions with the music continuing their hybrid of depressive black metal, doom and drone with the album being self released and called "Synthesis".
Drum programming are all slow beats that have some influences from underground electronic music, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars, as for the sound effects which are only used briefly they bring an experimental and avant garde sound to the recording.
Rhythm guitars are all slow riffs that combine depressive black metal, doom and drone together to create a sound of their own with some distorted parts being used at times and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are all high pitched depressive black metal screams, while the song themes cover philosophical, metaphysical and Hegelian topics, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it with some songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Distorted Cognitions and if you are a fan of depressive black metal, drone and doom metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Vorben" "Hegelian Dialectic" "Tanscendental Ratio" and "Mass Action". RECOMMENDED BUY.
