O/Il Vuoto Perfetto/Gindpromotion Records/2012 CD Review


  O  are  a  band  from  Italy  that  mixes  raw  and  primitive  sounding  black  metal  with  crust,  grind,  and  post  hardcore  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2012  album  "Il  Vuoto  Perfetto"  which  was  released  by Grindpromotion  Records.

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  a  good  amount  of  brutal  sounding  blast  beats  being  thrown  into  the  music  at  times,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  strong  and  powerful  sound  with  heavy  riffing  that  dominates  throughout  the  recording.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  riffs  that  combine  primitive  black  metal  with  grin,  crust  and  post  hardcore  with  a  good  amount  of  dark  sounding  melodies  being  thrown  into  the  riffing  as  well  as  brief  use  of  soft  and  clean  playing  and  there  are  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  present on  this  recording.

  Vocals  range  from  high  pitched  black  metal  screams,   and  hardcore  style  yelling,  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in  Italian  and  cover  dark  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  heavy,  raw and  primitive  sound  while  you  can  still  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on t his  recording.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  recording  from  O  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  black  metal  mixed  with  post  hardcore,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE "Apnea"  "Non  e  Vivo"  "Contemplando"  "Creatori  Nascosti"  and  "L' Inizio".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
