Ninkharsag are a band from the United Kingdom that has been featured before in this zine with the music style on this recording being a very melodic and 90's influenced style of occult black metal and this is a review of their 2013 ep "The Essential Salts Of Human Dust" which was released by Ulthar Records.
"The Essential Salts Of Human Dust" begins with some heavy guitar riffing and drums which utilize some primitive elements setting up the mood for some melodic elements, screams and heavy bass playing which in return takes the song into a faster direction as well as mixing in mid paced sections before going into a slower direction.
"Liber V vel Reguli" begins with some Swedish style black metal guitar riffing which leads to some blast beats and screams as well as mixing in mid paced sections that go back to the 95 area of the genre along with some powerful bass playing in the background before reverting back to the faster parts which then leads to the song switching back and forth between both while also adding in some melody in the riffing.
Song lyrics cover Occultism, Magick and Ancient History, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and dark sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Ninkharsag and if you are a fan of 90's styl melodic occult black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Liber V vel Reguli". RECOMMENDED BUY.
