Archierophant are a solo project from the United Kingdom that plays an atmospheric mixture of black and doom metal and this is a review of his selfreelased 2020 ep "Kingdom".
Atmospheric sounding synths start off the ep before going into more of a heavier and melodic direction. Elements of doom metal can also be heard in the slower sections of the songs while spoken word samples can also be heard briefly as well as the vocals being mostly angry sounding black metal screams.
A touch of death metal can also be heard in some of the vocals while clean singing and Gregorian chants can also be heard briefly. Symphonic elements can also be heard in certain sections of the recording along with all of the drum beats being programmed as well as all of the tracks sounding very different from each other and all of the songs also stick to a slower music direction.
Archierophant plays a musical style that takes atmospheric black and doom/death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of his own. The production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover nontheistic themes.
In my opinion Archierophant are a very great sounding atmospheric blackened doom metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hierophant" and "Caedes". 8 out of 10.
