This is a review of an ep that has Arizona's Godhunter and Florida's Amigo The Devil called "The Outer Dark" which will be released as a joint effort between The Compound and Battleground Records in February 2015 and Godhunter strays away from their sludge, doom and crust roots and going for an acoustic folk/western direction.
Acoustic guitars start off the ep and gives the music a neo folk feeling along with some clean singing vocals that can also be very aggressive at times and after a few minutes the music starts adding in more melodic and melancholic moments along with the song also bringing in a great amount of full chords.
On the second track the music sticks to more of a neo folk direction while also adding in distorted parts and the song is a cover of Nirvana's "Something In The Way" and also sounds more melancholic than the original version.
Godhunter & Amigo the Devil create some very dark melancholic folk music and while it does not have the heaviness of other Godhunter's recordings the music still sounds very dark, the production has a very powerful sound while the lyrics cover depressive themes.
In my opinion this is a great effort between Godhunter & Amigo The Devil and if you are a fan of neo-folk, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Weeping Willow". 8 out of 10.
