Morko are a band from Finland that plays a misanthropic form of black metal mixed with doom and this is a review of their self released 2014 album "Itsensanimeava".
Breathing and spoken word parts start off the album before adding in doomy guitars, bass and drums which leads to a more raw black metal direction along with high pitched screams which also mixes in with the doom metal aspects of the recording and the band also brings in some of the 90's avant garde black metal into their sound.
On the other tracks the old school black metal influence is more prevalent on these songs while also having a somewhat progressive feeling to them along with a good amount of melody and the band also adds clean singing into certain sections of the recording and after awhile the band starts bringing in a mixture of both clean and heavy parts and all of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the spoken word parts do make their return on some of the later tracks amd on the last track you can hear a small amount of 80's thrash influences being mixed in with their black metal sound.
Morko has a very interesting sound that mixes old school and raw black metal with doom metal and the weirdness of Ved Buens Ende along with a dark and raw black metal and lyrics that are written in Finnish and cover nihilism and misanthropic themes.
In my opinion Morko are a very great sounding avant garde mixture of raw black metal and doom and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out t his band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Alhaninen Liejukoria" and "Neesten luo". 8 out of 10.
