Treurwilg are a band from the Netherlands that plays a mixture of black, funeral doom and post metal and this is a review of their self released 2020 album "An End To Rumination" which will be released on February 22nd.
Clean playing starts of the album and are also used on the other tracks while spoken word parts are also utilized at times, Elements of funeral doom metal can also be heard in the slower sections of the songs along with the riffs also use a great amount of melody and the vocals bring in a mixture of black metal screams and guttural death metal growls.
All of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the music also brings in a great amount of post metal elements. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic and atmospheric style, keyboards can also be heard in certain sections of the recording, as the album progresses a brief use of spoken word parts can also be heard and all of the songs stick to a slower direction.
Treurwilg plays a musical style that takes atmospheric black, funeral doom and post metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics are a concept album based upon and tells the tale of a man and its fears.
In my opinion Treurwilg are a very great sounding mixture of atmospheric black, funeral doom and post metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "In Ruin And Misery" and "Shallow Pools Of Grief". 8 out of 10.
