Ruho are a band from Finland that has had their music reviewed before in this zine and plays a very raw and old school form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Mouth Of Extinction" which was released by Triumph Of Death.
Clean playing starts off the ep before getting more distorted and going into a very fast and raw black metal direction that also uses a great amount of tremolo picking, blast beats and high pitched screams as well as mixing in a great amount of dark sounding melodies and you can also b eat all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
Most of the music is rooted in the 90's second wave era of the genre and clean playing also makes a return in certain sections of t he recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and when guitar leads are utilized they stick to a very dark, raw and melodic style.
Ruho creates another recording that remains true to the raw and old school Finnish black metal style of previous releases, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover death, Occultism and Anti Christianity themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Ruho and if you are a fan of raw and old school black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Remnants Of Wisdom" and "Perpetual End". 8 out of 10.
