Культура_Курения are a band from Russia that plays a mixture of depressive black metal and post punk and this is a review of their 2011 ep "Pbota" which was released by Depressive Illusions.
Drums range from slow to mid paced playing with no fast drumming or blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced riffs that combine depressive black metal with post punk to create a sound and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording, as for the acoustic guitars they use finger picking and full chords to bring elements of shoegaze to the ep.
Vocals are all high pitched depressive black metal s creams, while the lyrics are written in Russian and cover dark and depressing themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound while you can still hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Культура_Курения are a very great sounding hybrid of depressive black metal, post punk and shoegaze and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Pbota". RECOMMENDED BUY.
