Gort are a band from Italy that plays a very raw and misanthropic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Pestiferous Worms Miasma" which was released by Lupus Niger Prod. And Distro.
Atmospheric synths start off the album along with some acoustic guitars a few seconds later before going into more of a dark, heavy and melodic direction which also introduces high pitched black metal screams onto the recording and when the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the recording more of a raw feeling.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic direction and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the music is more rooted in the old school second wave style of the genre and as the album progresses some songs also mix in more of a depressive vibe and clean playing is also introduced on a few later tracks and there is also a brief use of clean singing on a couple of songs and growls can also be heard briefly and whispers are introduced on the last track.
Gort plays a style of black metal that is very raw and misanthropic sounding while also not afraid to adding different things into their style, the production sounds very dark, heavy and raw while the lyrics cover hate, war, destruction and misanthropy themes.
In my opinion Gort are a very great sounding raw and misanthropic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Old Bleeding Scars" "The Misanthrope" and "Dawn Of Worms". 8 out of 10.
