Adorn 16 – The Emaciated Beauty Song Review
Today we are featuring another promising death/black metal band; Adorn 16, from Azerbaijan. We have reviewed their thrilling song; The Emaciated Beauty, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.
Adorn 16 is a promising atmospheric black/death metal band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about a month ago with their impressive song; The Emaciated Beauty, off from their latest single with the same title, which was released in 2019. These gents are making music since 2019 and The Emaciated Beauty is only their third release in the same year. I know listening to only one song is never going to be enough to have a solid idea about the potential of any band. However, I have a strong feeling about them. Please give it a listen while reading the rest of the article.
The Emaciated Beauty is a very successful piece of work with a powerful story, lyrics, atmosphere, general vibe, and music video. We all know the power of presentation in any kind of art. Adorn 16 first caught my interest with their origins, then with their music. As you might also remember from some of my previous articles, I believe in the freshness of creative work from different parts of the world. This is going to play a much more crucial role in the success of upcoming artists in the future. In our example, I can hear that Adorn 16 has quite pure/raw foundations for their music. The general atmosphere in the song is impressive enough for any metal fans to like the song. It immediately catches your full attention and giving you a dark/tense feeling where we used to hear from doom metal bands. They aren’t fast as regular black/death metal bands out there, yet they have the proper aggression, dark atmosphere and attitude in their music.
The structure of the song is quite standard. It is not challenging the listener with its technical side, this has more like a general vibe focus. On the other hand, the music video is quite disturbing and effective. You’ll never forget about the horrifying story once you’ve seen it. I personally wasn’t expecting to see these high standards from an upcoming band. They have done everything very professionally so far, which is admirable. I used to listen to Moonspell a lot when I was younger and Adorn 16’s music has reminded me of their understanding of music from time to time. Adorn 16 briefly has a powerful blend here, and I really liked their foundations.
Technically, The Emaciated Beauty has quite good standards for me as a listener. Time to time I talk about the importance of decisions, production and the sound character in music. In this case, I can hear that the song has more like traditional black/doom metal kinda approach. It is much more old school, focusing mostly on the general tense feeling than the technical side of the work. And it’s irresistible. Hands down! I am not a big fan of the modern way of handling sound production so this works perfectly for me. Also, none of the black metal listeners are into sound quality anyways.
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am very impressed by Adorn 16. Along with their unique culture and origins, they have the right foundations on their music, which will eventually evolve in time and provide a unique way in their future careers. They are showing some real potential not only with their professionalism but also with their old school influences, perspective, and depth in their art. The Emaciated Beauty is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED for those who are into some fresh inspirations, atmospheric black and death metal music!
