Negator are a band from Germany that has had music reviewed before in this zine and on this recording plays an occult form of black metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Vnitas Pvritas Existentia" which will be released in October by Massacre Records.
Rain and thunder sounds start off the album along with some epic sounding synths and ritualistic spoken word parts a few seconds later before going into a heavier musical direction which also introduces melodic riffing and grim black metal screams onto the recording and the faster sections of the songs also add in a decent amount of melody.
Growls and death metal influences can also be heard in some parts of the music while the fast tremolo picking riffs also give the songs more of a raw feeling when they are utilized. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some synths also being added into certain sections of the recording.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style along with the music being a lot more different than the traditional style of black emtal they played on earlier releases and the music goes into more of a modern black/death metal style and as the album progresses a brief use of clean playing can be heard and a couple of tracks are very long and epic in length. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism and Left Hand Path themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Negator and if you are a fan of black and extreme metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Temple Of Light" "Pyroleophis" 'Regnvm Spiritvs Immvndi" and "Der Ruf Der See". 8 out of 10.
