This is a review of their 4th installment in the ep series from Merda Mundi with the music style continuing their raw and primitive approach to black metal with the release being self released in 2009 and entitled "IV'.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the synths which are only used on the intro bring a very dark and atmospheric sound to the recording, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that are very old school, dark, raw and primitive sounding in the 90's tradition along with a brief use of clean playing, while the lead guitars when they are utilized are very dark and melodic sounding black metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly grim sounding and high pitched black metal screams that have a very depressive tone to them at times as well as some deeper vocals along with some clean singing being used on the last song, while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it with one of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Merda Mundi and if you are a fan of old school, raw and primitive sounding black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Moribund Throne" and "As Winter Dies". RECOMMENDED BUY.
