Terra are a band from the United Kingdom that has been featured before in this zine and plays an atmospheric form of black metal with elements of drone and post rock and this is a review of their 2016 album "Mors Secunda" which will be released in December by Code666.
Melodic guitar leads start off the album and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and both of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody and when the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard.
A very raw style of black metal can be heard during the faster sections of the songs while the vocals are mostly high pitched screams and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the music brings in more of a modern atmospheric style that also has influences from the Cascadian style and when solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and as the album progresses elements of drone and post rock can be heard.
Terra creates another recording that remains true to the atmospheric style of black metal from their previous recording while also having its raw moments and expanding on the drone and post rock influences, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Terra and if you are a fan of atmospheric black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Apotheosis". 8 out of 10.
