Jotnarr are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a mixture of raw, atmospheric black metal and hardcore punk and this is a review of their 2015 ep "Burn And Bury" which was released by SuperFi Records.
A very raw and lo-fi black metal sound starts off the ep and also speeds up and brings in a great amount of blast beats and melodies and after grim screams are added into the music more hardcore punk elements are added into the music and the songs also start bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
You can hear elements of post hardcore in the bands musical style while the slower sections bring in a touch of doom metal and some of the tracks also bring in a small amount of clean playing and acoustic guitars which also adds in a touch of progressive and post black metal while the songs also still have their raw moments and the last track is long and epic in length.
Jotnarr plays a style of black metal that is perfectly balanced between the more atmospheric and post style as well as bringing in the old school rawness with a touch of hardcore punk to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very heavy and raw while the lyrics cover darkness and nature themes.
In my opinion Jotnarr are a very great sounding mixture of raw, atmospheric black metal and hardcore punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Rise by Sun" and "Hernswolf". 8 out of 10.
