Turritopsis nutricula/Self Titled/2011 EP Review

  Turritopsis nutricula are a band from Slovenia that plays a very atmospheric and depressive form of black metal and this is a review of their self titled and self released 2011 demo.

Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars, as for the synths which are only utilized on the outro they bring a very dark and evil ambient sound to the music.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast raw and primitive sounding depressive black metal riffs mixed in with some dark sounding melodies as well as a brief use of soft and clean playing that uses a good amount of full chords to enhance the darkness of the music and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.

Vocals are a mixture of grim sounding black metal growls and high pitched depressive black metal screams with a brief spoken word part being used on one song, while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.

In my opinion Turritopsis nutricula are a very great sounding raw and primitive atmospheric/depressive black metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Until The Grim Master Invites Us To Dance". RECOMMENDED BUY.
