Hourvari/Self Titled/Lost Pilgrims Records/2013 EP Review


  Hourvari  are  a  band  from  France t hat  plays  a  mixture  of  hardcore,  post  rock,  sludge  and  doom  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  self  titled  2013  ep  which  was  released  by  Lost  Pilgrims  Records.

  "I"  starts  off  with  some  soft acoustic  guitars  which  utilizes  both  finger  picking  and  full  chords  which  leads  to  the  set  up  of  the  drumming  and  clean  singing along  with  some  bass  playing  and  powerful,  heavy  guitar  riffs  which  utilize  some  melodic  elements  which  in  returns  lead  to  some  screams,  growls  and  post  rock  guitar  leads  while  also  keeping  a  very  dark  atmosphere  before  switching  back  and  forth  between  soft  and  heavy  parts.

  "II"  starts  off  with  some  drums  and  distorted  clean  playing  and  then  the  heavy  bass  doom  riffs  and  screams  kick  in  along  with  a  melodic  post  rock  riff  which  sets  up  the  pace  for  the  melodic  post  hardcore  style  clean  singing  which  in  returns  gets  more  aggressive  as  the  song  moves  on,  then  the  song  switches  back  and  forth  between  being  soft  and  heavy

  Lyrics  on  the  recording  cover  dark  themes,  while  the  production  has  a  very  strong,  powerful,  heavy, d ark  and  professional  sound  where  you  can  hear  all  of  the   musical  instruments  that are  present  on  the  ep  with  both  songs  being  very  long  and  epic  in  length.

  In  my  opinion  Hourvari  are  a  very  great  sounding  hybrid  of  hardcore,  post  rock,  sludge  and  doom  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "I".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
