Terra Deep are a 1 man band from Springfield, Oregon that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very atmospheric and progressive form of cascadian black metal and this is a review of his self released 2014 album "Inamorta".
The album starts out with tragic sounding keyboards and distortion before going into a more fast atmospheric black metal direction along with blast beats and after awhile the music slows down and grim screams are added into the music along with some melodies as well as a mixture of slow and fast parts and after awhile melodic vocals become a part of the mix and as time goes on by acoustic guitars are added in along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
As the album progresses the music gets more progressive along with traces of melodic black metal as well as a good amount of acoustic and heavy parts and after awhile solos and leads are brought into certain sections of the recording as well as the vocals getting deeper at times and there are still a good amount of fast parts and blast beats present on this recording and on the last tack a small amount of synths are added into the song.
On this album Terra Deep retain the atmospheric cascadian black metal sound while also taking the music into a more progressive direction and fusing both genres together to create a very original sounding recording.
Song lyrics cover dark themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and dark sound for being a self released recording where you can hear all of the musical instruments present on this album as well as all 3 of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Terra Deep and if you are a fan of atmospheric, progressive black metal you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Winterwall". 8 out of 10.
