Nathicana are a band from the U.K that plays black metal with a death metal edge and this is a review of their self released 2012 demo.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown into the music at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that combine some death metal influences and melody into the riffing as wel as a brief use of doom metal influences, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding black/death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams that have a depressive feeling to them at times as well as some deeper growls, while the lyrics cover dark and occult themes, as for the production it has a very strong and powerful sound for being a self released recording.
In my opinion Nathicana are a very great sounding black metal band with a death metal edge and if you are a fan of this style of music, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Devour". RECOMMENDED BUY.
