Framheim are a duo from Italy that plays a very cold and atmospheric black metal and this is a review of t heir self released 2017 demo "Polar Black Metal".
Ambient soundscapes start off the demo before adding in fast tremolo picking that also gives the songs a very lo-fi and raw feeling along with a great amount of blast beats and grim black metal screams and after awhile melodic guitar leads start to make their presence known along with the riffs also using melody.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the atmospheric elements also get mixed in with the heavier sections of the songs and there is also a small amount of experimental elements along with a great amount of 90's second wave era influences being mixed in with a more modern style.
Ftramheim plays a style of atmospheric black metal that is very raw and lo-fi while also having its melodic, experimental and ambient moments, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover polar explorations, frozen landscapes,, desolation and loneliness themes,
In my opinion Framheim are a very great sounding cold and atmospheric black metal duo and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out t his demo. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Lu Fredd". 8 out of 10.
