Cruda Sorte are a band from Germany that plays a very raw and atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Ewigkeiten im Schimmel" which was released by Bleeding Heart Nihilist Productions.
An avant garde sounding intro starts off the album along with some keyboards a few seconds later before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while the music also gets very atmospheric at times.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very raw yet melodic melodic sounding while the vocals are mostly angry and high pitched black metal screams along with some clean playing also being added into certain sections of the recording as well as some clear vocals.
Some of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the music also brings in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some depressive elements also being used at times and they also bring in a brief use of shamanistic style percussion and experimental elements before returning back to a heavier direction.
Cruda Sorte plays a style of black metal that is very raw, depressive and atmospheric sounding, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in German and cover Anti Christianity, Nihilism, Eternity, Illimitability and Anti Cosmic Satanism themes.
In my opinion Cruda Sorte are a very great sounding raw, depressive and atmospheric black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Die Letzte Ara" and "Schimare". 8/5 out of 10.
