Nocturnal Nightmare a duo from Sweden that plays a very depressive form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 ep "Alt Har Sitt Slut".
Clean guitars start off the ep and after a minute the music gets heavier and speeds up as well as going into a raw black metal direction which also introduces depressive high pitched screams to the recording and both of the tracks bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as having clean parts make their return at times.
Whispers can be heard in certain sections of the recording and also add more of a suicidal atmosphere to the bands musical style and the music at time s can be a bit avant garde while the main focus remains more on a depressive black metal style and on the second tracks melodies are added into the music along with some guitar leads.
Nocturnal Nightmare continue the depressive black metal sound of previous recordings while also making both of their songs very diverse, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in a mixture of English and Swedish and cover suicide, self harm and depression.
In my opinion this is another great sounding ep from Nocturnal Nightmare and if you are a fan of depressive black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Allt Har Sitt Slut". 8 out of 10.
