Nergal/The Wizard Of Nerath/Unisound Records/1995 CD Review

  Nergal are a band from Greece that plays a very atmospheric form of Greek style occult black metal and this is a review of their 1995 album "The Wizard Of Nerath" which was released by Unisound Records.

Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown in at times, while the keyboards have a very dark and atmospheric sound to them, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast Greek style black metal riffs that are very melodic at times, and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.

Vocals are very high pitched black metal screams that have a depressive feeling to them at times mixed in with a small amount of spoken word parts, while the lyrics touch on darkness, occultism and mythology, as for the production it has a very raw and primitive sound to it.

In my opinion Nergal are a very great sounding Greek atmospheric occult black metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "My Soul, Blood, Will Be Dripping" "The Wind Of Hate" "The Wizzard Of Nerath" and "The Dream Of The Dragon". RECOMMENDED BUY.
