Australia's Nekrasov have returned with a new recording with the music being a mixture of atmospheric black metal and power electronics and this is a review of his 2017 album "The Mirror Void which will be released in November by Prosthetic Records.
Distorted power electronics start off the album along with some heavy riffing a few seconds later while the guitar solos and leads when they are utilized are done in a very dark and melodic fashion as well as most of the tracks being very long and epic in length and after awhile grim yet high pitched black metal screams are added onto the recording.
When tremolo picking is utilized it gives the music more of a raw feeling while atmospheric synths are also added into certain sections of the recording along with some elements of dark ambient and the music also mixes harsh noise with black metal at times as well as the faster sections of the songs also bringing in a decent amount of blast beats and there is also some instruments that are done in more of an experimental and avant garde style, female vocals can also be heard briefly.
On this recording Nekrasov focuses more on a raw mixture of black metal and power electronics on this recording to create something different from previous releases, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover negative themes with a touch of Lovecraftian vault.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Nekrasov and if you are a fan of black metal and power electronics, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Whatever Pleases You, Keeps You Back "The Ignorance Of the 5 Elements" and "Boils And Fevers Clear The Body Of Impurities". 8 out of 10.
