Under Victoria - (Self-Titled) - Reviewed By occultblackmetalzine ! check it out here at this link: https://occultblackmetalzine.blogspot.com/2023/03/under-victoriaself-titled2023-full.html
Under Victoria are a solo project from Australia that plays a melodic form of post black metal and this is a review of his self titled and self released 2022 album.
A very dark, heavy and melodic sound starts off the album while the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams. All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them along with the faster sections of the songs also adding in a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the music more of a raw feeling.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic post metal style while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. At times the music also gets very atmospheric sounding along with some clean playing also being added into certain sections of the recording. One song is also an instrumental, whispers can also be heard briefly and the last couple of tracks are also very long and epic in length.
Under Victoria plays a musical style that takes the melodic and post forms of black metal and mixes them together to create a sound of his own. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Under Victoria are a very great sounding melodic post black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sanctum Saint" "Unnamed Birth" and "In the Name OF'. 8 out of 10. occultblackmetalzine
