Gort are a band from Italy that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very raw and misanthropic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2017 ep "A Morte Ad Mortem" which will be released in November by Lupus Niger Prod. And Distro.
Ritualistic soundscapes start off the ep before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also utilizes a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling while the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams and the music also has a lot of 90's influences.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the riffs also adding in a small amount of depressive melodies and death metal growls can also be heard briefly, most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and clean playing can also be heard in the background briefly.
Gort creates another recording that remains very true to the raw and misanthropic style of black metal from previous releases, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover hate, war, destruction and misanthropy themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Gort and if you are a fan of raw and misanthropic black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Black Glorification" and "The Last Flight Of The Crow". 8 out of 10.
