Insonus are a duo form Italy that plays a very raw and depressive form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Nemo Optivat Vivere" which was released by Throats Productions.
Spoken word samples start off the ep before going into more of a heavy and melodic musical direction and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and after awhile high pitched depressive black metal screams are added onto the recording along with the music speeding up.
During the faster sections of the songs you can hear a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the music more of a raw black metal feeling while the solos and leads are done in a more depressive and melodic style and there is one track that uses bells as an intro and the songs bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with a few of the tracks being very long and epic in length and there is also a brief use of whispered vocals and clean guitars as the ep progresses and synths are added onto the last song which is also all instrumental.
Insonus plays a style of black metal that is very raw and depressive while also adding in a more aggressive and anti human touch to the genre, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover misanthropy, nihilism, and depressive themes.
In my opinion Insonus are a very great sounding raw and depressive black metal duo and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Solution" and "Nihilist Manifesto". 8 out of 10.
