Zinumm are a 1 man band from Spain that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style on this recording I would describe as being raw and primitive sounding black metal with elements of dark ambient and this is a review of their self released and self titled 2011 album.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the synths bring a very dark, atmospheric and ambient sound to the album, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast atmospheric black metal riffs that are very dark, raw and primitive sounding with some ambient elements and melody being thrown into the riffing and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized use finger picking and full chords to add some medieval elements to the album.
Vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams along with a brief use of clean singing, while the lyrics are written in Irish Gaelic and cover European Folklore themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Zinumm and if you are a fan of raw and primitive sounding atmospheric black metal with elements of ambient, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ár dídeanaí d'aois" and "Is é mo talamh imithe rn mar sin i". RECOMMENDED BUY.
