This is a split album between two bands from Greece, Dodsferd who has been interviewed before in this zine and Mortovatis, this album came out on Moribund Records in 2010 and we will start of the review with Dodsferd,
Dodsferd plays a very primitive and raw, hateful, depressing form of black metal that has a slight punk edge.
Drums are mostly fast with a lot of brutal blast beats, while the bass playing has a very powerful distorted tone with a punk edge.
Rhythm guitars are mostly fast and primal raw black metal riffs with some slower and mid paced riffing that is very depressive and there are little to no lead guitars or solos present on this recording.
Vocals are all high pitched black metal screams with some deep growls being used at times mixed in with some depressive cries of pain, while the lyrics cover hateful and depressive themes, as for the production it is very raw sounding which is perfect for this kind of black metal.
Mortovatis are an experimental/drone/improv/black metal band and they close off the cd with their song having a lot of noisy and distorted effects mixed in with some slow and crushing drums and guitars with no vocals.
In my opinion this is a very good split with Dodsferd once again putting out great material and I am looking forward to hearing some more stuff from Mortovatis in the future. RECOMMENDED BUY.
