Cara Neir/Stagnant Perceptions/2011 CD Review

 Cara Neir are a band from Dallas, Texas that plays a very raw and primitive form of black metal mixed with crustcore and screamo and this is a review of their self released 2011 album "Stagnant Perceptions".

Drum programming ranges from slow, mid paced to fast beats, while  the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with riffs that dominate throughout the recording.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that are very raw and primitive sounding mixed in with some influences from crustcore and screamo to create a sound of their own as well as some dark sounding melodies mixed in with a brief use of soft and clean playing while the lead guitars when they are utilized are very dark and distorted sounding guitar solos and leads.

Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams with some deep growls being thrown in at times that are a combination of death metal and crustcore, while the lyrics cover hateful themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.

In my opinion Cara Neir are a very great and original sounding raw and primitive black metal with a crustcore and screamo edge and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Imperialist Design" "Dethroned And Leprous" "Amaranthine Fingers" and "My Apology". RECOMMENDED BUY
