Greek black metal has always had its own aesthetic and newcomer Moonscar is no exception. Their debut, Blood Moon, features black metal of a melodic stripe with sparse, haunting keys backing up a mix of tremolo picking and standard riffing guitars. Musically, the songs are standard and sort of flow from one to the next without a ton of distinguishing features, but the vocals are what separate this from the crowd. At the core they are dry rasps but Moonscar, either on purpose or by accident, lay on some delay or repeat effect that makes it sound like there are two singers, slightly out of sync, and the result is some truly creepy sounds emanating from them. Combined with eerie keyboard melodies in some of the slower sections, you’ve got a good reason to keep the lights on if you are listening at night. I’d like to see Moonscar step up their songwriting while exploring more of the chilling vocal work on their next effort. Regardless, an album for fans of Greek black metal to explore.
