This is a review of a cassette from Distorted Cognitions which continues their drone, depressive black metal hybrid which was released in 2012 called "Incipient" which also has their 2009 ep "Shadows".
Drums programming when they are utilized are all slow beats, while there are some sound effects that are used at times and they bring in more noise, ambient and drone elements to the recording with the second ep being mostly in that direction with little use of guitars and vocals except for some parts.
Rhythm guitars are all slow riffs that combine depressive black metal with drone and doom metal to create a sound of their with the riffing being dark and primitive sounding along with a good amount of heavy distortion and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are all grim sounding and high pitched black metal screams, while the song times cover metaphysical, nihilism, and philosophical themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Distorted Cognitions and if you are a fan of depressive black, drone, ambient and doom, you should check out this cassette. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Quantum Doctrine" "The Constraint Of Metaphysics" "Nihilistic Foundation" and "Vigor Axiom". RECOMMENDED BUY.
