Haunted Shores – Void (review)

Haunted Shores Void

Side project of Periphery guitarists, Misha Mansoor and Mark Holcomb. Very intricate instrumental death prog, filled with blasts, chord-based atmospheres, and caustic breakdowns.

In short, we find a bit of all the guitar elements that have made the two axemen who created this project popular.

The sound is modern and excellently produced, as one would expect from musicians of such caliber in the genre. On several occasions, perhaps due to the intense use of blast beats and dissonant chords, Ihsahn of Emperor’s production came to mind.

The drums seem programmed based on the dynamics, but the intertwining guitars are absolutely worth listening to, especially for those not very familiar with that modern branch of metal called djent.
