Black Ground Project are a solo project from Germany that plays a very atmospheric and progressive form of blackened death emtal and this is a review of his 2021 album "Blood & Violence" which will be released on December 17th by WormHoleDeath Records.
Clean playing starts off the album along with some atmospheric sounding synths a few seconds alter which also mixes in with the heavier sections of the songs at times. Vocals are a mixture of death metal growls and black metal screams while the faster sections of the songs also add in a decent amount of blast beats.
All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. At times the music also gets very progressive and symphonic sounding along with the riffs also adding in a decent amount of melody.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style along with some breakdown style riffing in the mid tempo sections of the songs as well as one track also adding in a brief use of stringed instruments and the closing track is very long and epic in length, spoken word parts can also b e heard on the closign song. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion Black Ground Project are a very great sounding atmospheric and progressive blackened death metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCL:UDE "Flying Evil" and "Dark Dragon Rider". 8 out of 10.
