The solo project of Valborg vocalist/guitarist Christian Kolf, doom metal band Owl will release ‘Orion Fenix’ on March 23rd 2018 via Zeitgeister Music.
It might only be one track but it comes in at slightly over 22 minutes long. Orion Fenix delivers haunting melody, huge sounding doom & rhythmic guitars that will sweep you away. Orion Fenix is dripping with atmosphere from beginning to end & the tempo shifts keep things exciting & interesting. Regardless of if it’s delivering a heavier, meatier metal sound or a more melodic style, its 22-minute run flies by.
The cleanliness of the riffs offers a crisp sound while still sounding doomy as hell along with fuzzy feedback and the inclusion of airy & light synth just caps of a wonderful listen.
Orion Fenix is an appetiser for the forthcoming unveiling of what will be, the equally unique ‘Nights In Distortion’ album released through Temple of Torturous Records.
