Burning Church Forest are a band from Australia that plays a raw and primitive form of occult black metal with elements of ambient and noise and this their 2009 album "Book 1" which was released by Noise Machine Records.
"Chapter 1'' begins with avant garde noise sounds and synths and a few seconds alter raw and primitive sounding black metal guitar riffs make their way into the song along with some high pitched screams and demonic growls a minute later and as time goes on by blast beats start coming in and halfway through the song the music starts slowing down for awhile along with the vocals adding in some grim sounding elements and you can hear some synths in the background and the song closes with the noise elements.
"Chapter 2" begins with some harsh noise elements and primitive guitar riffing which leads up to some drums and blast beats and a minute alter the high pitched black metal screams start coming in along with some depressive and grim elements and after a few minutes the music starts slowing down a bit and adding in demonic elements before getting fast again and then slowing back down and adding sine some dark ambient synths and noise elements as well as some evil laughter.
"Chapter 3" begins with some dark ambient synths which lead up to some slow black metal guitar and bass riffs along with some drums and after a minute the evil black metal vocals start kicking in while also keeping the synths in the background and after awhile deep demonic vocals are added into the mix and the riff remains the same until almost the closing of the song and it closes with a more black ambient/noise sound.
"Chapter 4" begins with some noise sounds before the primitive guitar riffs start kicking in and a minute alter drums and blast beats start coming in which leads up to some ritualistic grim sounding black metal vocals which also throw in some depressive screams and halfway through the song the guitars stop and they music goes more into an ambient direction while keeping around the vocals before adding in some slow guitar riffs and a minute later it starts getting fast and primitive again and towards the end the guitars stop again and the synths take over along with some demonic screams and growls.
Song themes cover Satanism and Occultism, while the production has a very dark, raw and primitive sound with the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Burning Church Forest are a very great sounding raw and primitive occult black metal band with elements of noise and ambient and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Chapter 1" and "Chapter 3". RECOMMENDED BUY.
