Gnaw Their Tongues are a 1 man band from the Netherlands that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style that combines occult black metal with funeral doom, drone, experimental and noise and this is a review of their 2011 album "Per Flagellum" which was released by Crucial Blast Recordings.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the synths and sound effects bring a very dark and atmospheric sound to the recording bringing in elements of ambient, noise and experimental, as for the bass playing it 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 occult black metal with funeral doom, drone, noise and experimental to create a sound of their own and their are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams that have a depressive tone to them at times along with some spoken word samples, weird vocals, and deep demonic growls, while the lyrics cover Bondage, Human Torture and Morbid Esoterica with one song being written in German, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and dark sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Gnaw Their Tongues and if you are a fan of experimental black metal, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Urine Soaked Neophytes" "Fallen Deities Bathing In Gall" and "The Storming Heavens As A Father". RECOMMENDED BUY.
