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.
