Woest are a band from France that plays a mixture of black, industrial and doom metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 album "La fin de l' ere sauvage".
Powerful sounding bass guitars start off the album along with some melodic singing and chanting a few seconds later which also mix in grim black metal screams at times while the synths make the music more atmospheric along with a great amount of industrial elements and demonic growls are also used briefly.
At times the music brings in a more modern style of atmospheric black metal and gun shot samples are also use d briefly along with a great portion of the tracks being very long and epic in length and as the album progresses the vocals also mix in the more harsh side of industrial and the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction and melodic guitar leads are added onto the closing track.
Woest plays a musical style that mixes atmospheric black metal, doom and industrial and mixes them together to create something very different, the production sounds very dark, raw and heavy while the lyrics are written in French and cover dark themes.
In my opinion Woest are a very great sounding mixture of black metal, industrial and doom metal and if you a are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tout s'ecroule" and "Toundra". 8 out of 10.
