Vorbkt are a project from Croatia that plays a very raw and depressive form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2013 ep "Cellar".
The ep starts out with spoken word samples and screams before adding in a distorted, melodic and depressive sound along with some powerful sounding bass guitars and after the intro the music starts out with a slower direction before adding in guitar leads and raw black metal elements as well as going into a faster direction along with blast beats and high pitched depressive screams.
When the ep goes into other songs the music becomes a mixture of raw, old school black metal and dsbm in the more European tradition and the music is mostly in a faster direction while there are also slow, depressive and suicidal moments being utilized at times as well as a brief use of deep and demonic sounding vocals.
With this ep Vorbkt show off 2 sides of their musical sound with their music being in a fast and raw old school black metal sound of the early 90's while their slower material goes for more of the depressive black metal sound of the early pioneers of that particular sub genre and it result s in a very great sounding recording that is true to black metal from beginning to end.
Song lyrics cover death, dying and torture themes, while the production has a very dark, raw and old school sound while you can still hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Vorbkt are a very great sounding mixture of raw black metal and dsbm and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Filling their Graves" and "Frozen Remnants Of My Lifeless Body". 8 out of 10.
