Wendigo are a solo project from Quebec, Canada that plays a very raw and atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of their 2017 cassette compilation "Hymnes d'outre-tombe" which was released by Nekart Productions.
A very fast and raw sound starts off the compilation along with a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking while the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's as well as the vocals being high pitched black metal screams as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to t hem.
Demonic growls can also be heard at times while the music also has its atmospheric moments along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as the solos and leads being done in a very melodic fashion and atmospheric synths and folk instruments can also be heard briefly.
Wendigo plays a style of black metal that is very raw and old school while also having its atmospheric moments, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in French and cover mysticism, occultism, despair, psychiatry, anger and shamanism themes.
In my opinion Wendigo are a very great sounding raw and atmospheric black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this compilation. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Par une douler aveuglante" and "Silence". 8 out of 10.
