Imaginator are a band from Norway that plays a very atmospheric form of blackened death metal with atmospheric and prog elements and this is a review of their self titled and self released 2014 ep.
The ep starts out with atmospheric synths and a heavy djent sound and a few seconds later bass guitars and aggressive vocals are added into the music and they bring in more death and black metal influences in the screams and growls and then robotic clean singing becomes a part of the music.
Later on melodic solos are added into the music along with clean playing and the clean singing starts sounding a lot more normal while they also keep around the growls and on the following track the music gets more progressive and atmospheric while also being very heavy at the same time and at times you can also hear acoustic guitars in the background along with small amounts of blast beats being utilized at times
With this ep Imaginator take a variety of metal genres from black, death, prog and djent and combine them to create a sound of their own while also having a good amount of melody, atmospheric and technical parts, while the production sound s very professional for a self released recording with the song lyrics covering philosophical themes.
In my opinion Imaginator are a very great sounding mixture of black, death, djent and prog metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "God Mode". 8 out of 10.
