Slovenian atmospheric black metal band, Zorya are back with a brand-new two-track EP called ‘Escapism’. The EP will be released on July 4th, 2022.
Beginning with a dark and mood-altering atmosphere, Autumn is warped by the harsh sound of blackened metal. Zorya sound in pain, the vocal howls in particular, really make things colder and harsher. However, the instrumental section, is clean and melodic. It makes for a drawn-out slice of suffering that oozes atmosphere and holds an underlying prettiness.
The second track, Pain II, takes that feeling and amplifies it with a piece of music that is haunting and heavy in equal parts. A track the builds and builds to a glorious crescendo, delivering heartfelt melody, deep and moving atmosphere and eye-watering brutal black metal parts.
It’s a triumph of an EP. One that delivers an incredible, bitesize chunk of brilliance.
