Frostagrath are a 1 man band from Egypt that has been featured before in this zine and play a very depressive and atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of his 2014 ep "Isolation" which was released by Rigorism Productions.
Sounds of wind and raw guitar riffs start off the ep along with some grim black metal screams which also get deep at times and the guitars also add in some melodic leads along with an atmospheric background being present on the music and there is also a good mixture of both clean and heavy parts present throughout the recording.
Most of the music sticks to a slow to mid paced depressive black metal musical direction while also still displaying a great amount of raw aggression along with all of the songs being very long and pass 6 minutes and the guitar riffs utilize a great amount of melody and the last track is the most atmospheric and depressive song present on this recording and it also brings an ambient feeling to the recording as well as speeding up a bit.
Frostagrath remains true to the depressive and atmospheric black metal sound which has been a huge part of all of the recordings he has released so far, the production has a very dark, and raw sound while the lyrics cover Negativity, Sorrow, Depression and Anti Life themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Frostagrath and if you are a fan of atmospheric and depressive black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Portal of Destruction". 8 out of 10.
