This is a review of a split ep between Italy's Malauriu and Eternu Duluri which was self released in 2015 and we will start off the review with Malauriu a band that has been featured before in this zine and plays an old school form of black metal.
Their side of the split starts off with drum beats and ritualistic sounding bells and winds and after the intro the music starts going into more of a fast and raw black metal direction along with some blast beats and grim screams that also have a hateful edge to them and the music also brings in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and you can also hear a slight thrash influence at times and the last track also brings in a brief use of spoken word parts, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Latin and cover cover death, human and misery.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Malauriu and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Putrefazione".
Next up is Eternu Duluri a band that plays a very raw form of black metal.
Their side of the split starts off with a very fast and raw black metal sound along with some high pitched screams before slowing down a bit and adding in small amounts of melody and it also gives the music a depressive feeling at times and the 2 later tracks also bring in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the bass guitar having a very powerful sound and the last track also adds in some atmospheric elements, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Italian and cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Eternu Duluri are a very great sounding dark and raw black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Viti Spizzati". 8 out of 10.
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of the raw and atmospheric black metal genres. 8 out of 10.
