Karnstein are a band from The United Kingdom that plays a mixture of black, doom and gothic metal and this is a review of their self released 2020 demo "Tje Apocalypse Demo".
A horror movie orientated intro starts off the demo while also introducing keyboards onto the recording which also mixes in with the heavier sections of the music. Elements of doom metal can also be heard in the slower sections of the songs along with the vocals being mostly grim black metal screams.
Most of the music is also very heavily rooted in the 90's era and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard. The riffs also add in a decent amount of melody along with some growls also being used at times while the music also mixes in elements of gothic metal and the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them as well as all of the drum beats being programmed.
Karnstein plays a musical style that takes black, doom and gothic metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover horror and apocalyptic themes.
In my opinion Karnstein are a very great sounding mixture of black, doom and gothic metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "No End In Sight..." and "Lycanthrope".8 out of 10.
