Blood Moon Hysteria – My Sacrifice E.P
Release Date: 13/04/2018
Running Time 22.03
Reviewed by Tsarina Wilson
Blood Moon Hysteria are a Norwegian band, founded in 2015 and consist of Runar Beyond (music and lyrics) and Fredrik S.
This E.P is very atmospheric in music but very dark and gritty in vocals with Runar’s impressive gravelly voice. With just 4 tracks, you would be forgiven for thinking you were going to get some run of the mill tracks but this is truly a dark and melancholy set of songs.
The acoustic guitar playing is quite haunting at times and the riffs are enough to give you goose bumps, yet somehow they manage to gel with the fuzzy vocals and everything just seems to work. The spoken part is very dark and, although the words are difficult to understand, it doesn’t leave anything to the imagination. It’s gritty and powerful, almost a throw-back to 90’s black metal.
The band focus on electric guitars, deep bass, eerie mellotron, which separately are good but mixed together are very explosive, and the synths are very clean to listen to. The tracks start slowly, build you up and then take you back down again.
