This is a review of a split album between Russia's Drama and Finland's Perdition Winds which will be released on December 25th, 2015 as a joint effort between Satanath Records and Black Plague Records and we will start off the review with Drama a band that plays a very dark and nihilstic form of black metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a very melodic and heavy sound along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful and a few seconds later grim black metal screams make their presence known on the recording and the solos and leads also use a great amount of melody and also add a progressive touch to the music and on the second track the music speeds up briefly and also adds in more of a raw sound along with a decent amount of blast beats, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover nihilism, death worship, darkness and cold themes.
In my opinion Drama are a very great sounding dark and nihilistic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Gloria Mortis".
Next up is Perdition Winds a band that has had an album reviewed before in this zine and plays a satanic form of black metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a very heavy and raw sound that gets very fast and adds in blast beats and deep yet grim screams that also get high pitched at times and the song is over 13 minutes in length and the song also brings in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the solos and leads have a very dark, melodic, yet catchy feeling to them and there is also a brief bass guitar lead, the production sounds very raw yet powerful while the lyrics deal Kain which is the Sumerian spelling for the biblical Cain and the cult he started.
In my opinion this is another great sounding track from Perdition Winds and if you are a fan of raw, satanic and occult black metal, you should check out their side of the split.
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of raw, nihilistic, satanic and occult black metal. 8 out of 10.
