This is a review of another recording from Nethervoid which continues their atmospheric, melodic, raw and primitive approach to satanic black metal with the ep being self released in 2008 and called "The Northern Hallows".
"The Northern Hallows" begins with some heavy guitar and bass riffs along with some drums with the riffing having some thrash elements and after awhile dark sounding melodic guitar leads start coming into the music along with some raw and primitive parts and then the grim sounding black metal s creams start kicking in and halfway through the song the music slows down a bit and adds in more guitar leads before speeding up again and adding in some deeper vocals.
"Cisterns Herafter" begins with some dark sounding guitar and bass riffs along with some drums before going into a more fast and primitive direction which leads up to some grim sounding black metal screams and after awhile the music starts switching back and forth between slow and fast parts and halfway through the song the guitars start adding in some melody along with some synths in the background which leads to the vocals adding in some deeper elements and towards the end there is a brief use of melodic guitar leads.
"Mask" which is a Bauhaus cover begins with some drums and dark, melodic guitar riffs before the grim black metal vocals start kicking in and after awhile t he music starts a dding in gothic elements along with some powerful sounding bass guitars.
Song lyrics cover Satanism, Darkness, and Occult 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 this is another great sounding recording from Nethervoid and if you are a fan of atmospheric, melodic, raw and primitive satanic black metal you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Cisterns Herafter". RECOMMENDED BUY.
