Fleurety are a band from Norway that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of black metal, avant garde and noise and this is a review of their 2017 compilation album "Inquietum" which will be released on August 21st and consists of the many 7 inches that they have released over the years.
Harsh noises and power electronics start off the album and also mix in with the heavier riffing which also leads up to some high pitched black metal screams being added onto the recording while the music also brings in a great amount of avant garde elements and you can also hear some melody in the guitar riffing.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast bets can be heard while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic yet progressive fashion and acoustic guitars can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and the guitar riffing also brings in a decent amount of tremolo picking.
Throughout the compilation you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while some tracks also bring in synths and drones along with some psychedelic elements also being used briefly and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them, female vocals can also be heard briefly as the album progresses and some of the songs is long and epic in length and also utilizes a more angry vocal approach and there are also a few instrumentals.
On this compilation Fluerty showcase a lot of their material that was released over the years which shows their avant garde black metal style getting more darker and experimental than what was presented on the early full lengths, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover weirdness, dark emotions and poetry themes.
In my opinion this is a very great sounding collection from Fluerty and if you are a fan of avant garde black metal, experimental and noise, you should check out this compilation. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Descent Into Darkness" "Summon The Beasts" "It's When Your Cold" and "Carnal Nations". 8 out of 10.
