This is a review of another recording from Frostbitten which goes for more of a raw and primitive approach to black metal this time around with the demo being self titled and self released in 2012.
"Introduction" begins with spoken word samples and sound effects as well as serving as an intro for the demo.
"Beyond The Mountain And Fog" begins with some primitive black metal guitar riffing and drums which lead to some blast beats and grim sounding high pitched screams and a minute later it slows down and soft acoustic guitar playing makes its presence known before going into a slow and heavy guitar riff.
"Ruins Of A Fallen Empire" begins with some slow old school black metal guitar riffs,m drums and grim sounding screams as well as a variety of many different riffs for a few minutes before going into some soft acoustic guitars for a few seconds before returning back to the heavy side with a slow and dark guitar riff.
"Descending Into Eternal Warfare" begins with some fast ,primitive guitar riffs and drums while also throwing in some melody and after a few seconds the music slows down and black metal vocals make their presence known and a few minutes later it calms down and you can hear some bass guitars before the acoustic guitars and clean singing make their way into the song for a few seconds before going into a fast and primitive direction along with some blast beats.
"One Minute Of Blasphemy" begins with some fast, primitive guitar riffs, drums and grim screams and the song is only a minute.
Song lyrics cover darkness, winter and war themes, while the production has a very dark, raw and primitive sound in the old school black metal tradition.
In my opinion t his is another great sounding recording from Frostbitten and if you are a fan of old school, raw and primitive black metal, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Beyond The Mountain And Fog" and "Descending Into Eternal Warfare". RECOMMENDED BUY.
