Rotting Bull are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a very raw form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 ep "Beyond Ragnarok" which is also the first part of a trilogy to be released throughout the winter.
Distorted sounds start off the ep along with some guitars along with some grim black metal vocals and screams a minute later and on the second track the music starts to speed up and goes into more of a fast and raw black metal direction and the music also brings in some melodies after awhile.
You can hear a lot of the mid 90's to early 200's black metal style in the bands musical style and the faster sections also bring in a great amount of tremolo picking and there is never a soft or weak moment present on this recording and the band also ignores using any solos and leads to focus more on a true style of black metal.
Rotting Bull plays a very hateful style of black metal that is very raw and aggressive in the true ways of this genre, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover violent, hateful and misanthropic themes.
In my opinion Rotting Bull are a very great sounding raw black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Strung Up With Piano Wire". 8 out of 10.
