This is a review of a split album between France's Paramnesia and Germany's UNRU 2 bands that have been featured before in this zine with the recording being released by Fragile Bunch Recordings in the year of 2014 and we will start off the recording with Paramnesia a band that plays an atmospheric form of black metal.
Their side of the split starts off with clean playing and after a couple of minutes the music gets heavier and goes into a more atmospheric black metal direction along with blast beats which also leads up to grim vocals as well as having a depressive tone to them and you can also hear some melody in the guitar riffing as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
After awhile the clean parts make a return to the music and their song goes into a slower direction which also leads up to a more depressive black metal sound before returning to a faster atmospheric black metal direction as well as mixing slow and fast parts together.
Song lyrics cover darkness, while the production has a very dark, raw and heavy sound to it with their only song being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding track from Paramnesia and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split.
Next up is UNRU with their mixture of black metal and crust.
Their side of the split starts off with an atmospheric sound and after a couple of minutes the music goes into a more faster depressive black metal direction along with suicidal vocals as well as bringing in more crust influences and blast beats as well as melody and they also brign in a mixture of slow and fast parts and towards the end they bring in some clean playing and spoken word parts.
Song lyrics are written in German and cover dark themes, while the production has a very dark and raw sound to it with their only song being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding track from UNRU which shows them going into a more black metal direction than there blackened crust of previous releases and if you are a fan of atmospheric black metal, you should check out the song they brought to the split.
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of atmospheric black metal. 8 out of 10.
