Nihilstinen Barbaarisuus/Vanamoinen/Infernal Kommando Records/2013 EP Review


  This  is  a  review  of  another  recording  from  Nihilstinen Barbaarisuus  which  continues  their  ambient  black  metal  sound  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2013  ep  "Vanamoinen"  which  was  released  by  Infernal  Kommando  Records.

  The  ep  starts  out with  a  dark  ambient  and  atmospheric  sound  before  going  into  a  more  fast  raw  black  metal  direction  along  with  grim  screams  and  blast  beats  while  also  keeping  around  the  synths  as  well  as  bringing  in  deeper  elements  to  the  vocals  and  then  slowing  down  and  adding  in  a  more  traditional  metal  feeling  while  also  remaining  true  to  their  core  sound.

  As  the  ep  progresses  they  bring  in  a  brief  use  of  clean  playing  before  going  into  an  even  more  atmospheric  black  metal  direction  while  also  keeping  around  the  faster  parts  and  the  following  song  is  a  brief  instrumental  which  uses  acoustic  guitars  and  ambient  synths.

  With  this  ep  Nihilstinen Barbaarisuus  continue  the  sound  that  was  on  their  previous  recording  while  also  adding  in  more  raw  sounding  aggression  and  heaviness  and c reating  a  song  that  is  very  long  and  epic  in  length.    

  Song  lyrics  cover  Artic,  Northern  Winter,  and  Isolation  themes,  while  the  production  has  a  very  dark  and raw  sound  to  it  with  only  one  full  song  and  an  instrumental  being  present  on t his  ep.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Nihilstinen Barbaarisuus  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  raw  and  cold  ambient  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Vanamoinen".  8  out  of  10.
