Despite the name, this band caught me by surprise. Hailing from Russia, Swamborn play in the style of post black metal and I am not talking about any bland black metal sound. The band take their top notch musicianship and create something intense, pulsating, melancholic with a hint of experimentation. Your ears are sure to be blown away. Both tracks engulf your very soul and take you on a manifold of emotions. Really, they do.
The tracks are perfectly developed as they variate a little different from each other but still keep that intense sound. The opening track is the more intense while the second track takes on a more of awe emotions however maintaining that beast like sound of the first. There are a lot of nice melodics and unexpected surprises. You just have to listen for yourself. I am sure you will be craving a bit more.
Really interested as what the band produces next. Hopefully they can provide a few more tracks to satisfy our hunger for the genre. Swampborn is really on top of their game with this debut. There is a free download on the bandcamp page. Go now quickly. Surely, you won't be disappointed
