Nebrus are a band from Italy that plays a very hypnotic and atmospheric form of black metal with a touch of death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Extra Malorvm" which will be released in November by Razed Soul Productions.
Atmospheric soundscapes start off the album and ritualistic spoken word parts can also be heard in the background and after the intro bass guitars make their presence known on the recording before going into more of a heavy, dark and melodic direction along with some tortured, grim yet high pitched black metal screams.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard along with some tremolo picking which also gives the songs more of a raw black metal feeling and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the guitar leads are done in a very dark yet melodic fashion and some of the riffing and deeper vocals also brings in influences of death metal and they also bring in another ritualistic intro halfway through the recording before reverting back to a heavier direction and a couple of the tracks are long and epic in length.
Nebrus plays a style of black metal that is very dark, raw and hypnotic while also adding in atmosphere with the guitars alone, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover death, misanthropy and anti Christian themes.
In my opinion Nebrus are a very great sounding raw, hypnotic and atmospheric black metal band with a touch of death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dismal Omen" "Havoc Emissary" and "Death Parade". 8 out of 10.
