A Cackle Or A Coughing Fit/Sea In A Circle/2013 Full Length Review


  This  is  the  final  review  of  a  recording  from  A  Cackle  Or  A  Coughing  Fit"  with  the  musical  style  continuing  their  original  approach  to  experimental  black  metal  with  the  album  being  self  released  in  2013  and  called  "Sea  In  A  Circle".

  "Dogfish"  starts  off  with  a  spoken  word  recital  of  Mary  Oliver's  poem  while  also  adding  in  some  synths,  drum  blast  beats  which  leads  up  to  the  depressive  black  metal  screams  and  cries.

  "Wire  Thicket"  starts  off  with  drums,  avant  garde synths,  banjos  and  black  metal  screams  which  leads  up  to  some  melodic  post  rock  guitar  leads.

  "You  Are  The  Eyes  Of  The  Wild"  starts  off  with  a  few  seconds  of  talking  before  the  black  metal  screams,  drums,  and  avant  garde  post  rock  synths  kick  in  and  as  the  song  moves  you  can  hear  some  acoustic  guitars  and  banjos.

  "The  Bridge  And  The  Nest"  starts  off  with  drums  and  video  game  style  synths  along  with  some  emo  style  clean  singing  and  black  metal  screams  before  going  into  nature  sounds  and  adding  in  banjos  which  leads  to  some  amplified  guitar  effects,  blast  beats  and  post  black  metal  style  guitar  riffing.

  ''Shadow  On  The  Water"  starts  off  with  drums,  80's  style  synths  and  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  which  also  add  in  some  depressive  and  suicidal  cries  before  the  clean  singing  comes  in  towards  the  end.

  "Bells  Or  Wings"  starts  off  with slow  drumming  and  light  primitive  black  metal  guitar  riffs  which  leads  to  the  synths  and  depressive  screams  while  also  adding  in  elements  of  post  rock.

  "Wrinkling"  starts  off  with  experimental  sound  effects  before  the  drums,  guitar  riffs  and  black  metal  screams  kick  in  along  with  some  dark  synths  before  evolving  into  blast  beats  and  primitive  guitar  riffing.

  "Tangle"  starts  off  with  powerful  drumming  and  synths  along  with  some  banjos  while  also  mixing  in  elements  of  post  rock  along  with  a  blast  beat  towards  the  end.

  Lyrics  cover  poetic  themes,  while  the  production  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 t his  is  another  great  sounding  album  from  A  Cackle  Or  A  Coughing  Fit  and  if  you  are  looking  for  something  very  original,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Dogfish"  "Shadow  On  The  Water"  and  "Wrinkling".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
