Bitter Lake are a solo project from Scotland that plays a very atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2017 album "Distortions In Sombre".
Atmospheric synths start off the album and they also mix in with the heavier sections of the music while also adding in elements of ambient and after awhile drum beats are added onto the recording and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats and tremolo picking can be heard.
During the faster sections of the songs the music has more of a raw feeling while spoken word samples can also be heard briefly along with a couple of the tracks being very long and epic in length and most of the music is instrumental and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and acoustic guitars are also used briefly.
Bitter Lake plays a style of black metal that is very atmospheric and mostly instrumental while also mixing in experimental and ambient elements to create a sound of his own and the production sounds very dark and raw.
In my opinion Bitter Lake are a very great sounding atmospheric black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Distortions In Sombre" and "Class War". 8 out of 10.
