This Quiet Army are a band from Canada that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style that combines experimental, post, rock, drone, doom and black metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Hex Mountains" which was released by Denovali Records.
"From Darkness" begins with some dark ambient synths and after a minute they start adding in some atmospheric and post rock elements, halfway through the song there are some programmed drum beats being added to the song which also leads to the music going into a more drone direction along with some heavy doom metal guitar riffs which also utilize some melodic leads and solos that bring in post black metal elements.
'Wraithslayers" begins with some experimental drone sounds and melodic chanting along with some avant garde noise sounds and then t he song starts focusing more on dark ambient soundscapes for the remainder of the song ranging from soft to loud.
"Digital Witchcraft" begins with some experimental and krautrock sounds and then the song mixes in quiet ambient soundscapes and experimental elements and as time goes on by the ambient sound s get more powerful and the song also goes into a darker direction along with some distorted elements and ritualistic sounds and towards the end clean sounding post rock guitar riffs make their way into the song along with some drum programming and loops.
"Spirits In Oblivion" begins with silence before adding in some ambient synths and sound effects and the music gets more powerful as time moves on by with some atmospheric and drone elements and after a couple of minutes programmed drum beats and bass guitars are added to the song and make the music a lot heavier sounding and halfway into the song heavy guitar riffs are added into the music
Song themes cover darkness, while the production has a very strong, powerful and dark sound with the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from This Quiet Army and if you are a fan of experimental drone with elements of black and doom metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "From Darkness" and "Spirits In Oblivion". RECOMMENDED BUY.
