Recitations - The Firsts of the Listeners (2016, Avantgarde Music)
Norway and Black Metal, Black Metal and Norway, you get it? Right? Okay so we can pass to something else. This band, which there is no information about anywhere has just released through Avantgarde Music a piece of four tracks of Contemporary Black Metal.
They have a dissonant sound and the tension of the background sounds of the first minute of ‘’To Voice the Unutterable’’ invokes darker shades of black. The vocals are not the usual Black Metal screechs, they are closer to Attila Csihar than to Abbath.
The production of this album is well balanced and the drums could be more present in the mix but I like the sound of every instrument. It has enough aggressives passages to be a satisfying Black Metal album and enough experimentation to please the eyebrow Black Metal critic in me. It is a well balanced album that I bet will be spinning for a long time.
