Ethir Anduin are a solo project from Russia that plays an instrumental mixture of black, doom and post metal and this is a review of his 2014 album "I Magen Av Svart Kaos" which was released as a joint effort between Satanath Records, Dark East Productions, and Wolfshade Productions.
Clean playing starts off the album along with some drum beats a few seconds later before going into a heavy and melodic post metal direction and you can also hear elements of black and doom metal in the music and the solos and leads also use a great amount of melody and none of the songs use any vocals or lyrics.
A couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the music sticks to either a slow or mid paced musical direction and you can the more atmospheric side of black metal and when the music speeds up a small amount of blast beats can be heard and one of the tracks also brings in a brief use of synths.
Either Anduin plays a musical style that takes a modern post metal sound and mixes it with atmospheric black and doom metal while also avoiding any vocals or lyrics to create a style of his own and the production also sounds very professional.
In my opinion Either Anduin are a very great sounding instrumental mixture of black, doom and post metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Och Ljuseet och Morket" "Kall Vinter" and "Boning Song". 8 out of 10.
