This is another review of a recording from Merda Mundi continuing their raw and primitive approach to black metal with the release being call "II-War" which was released in 2008 by Noires Litanies.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast playing with a great amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing 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 heavy, raw and primitive sounding while also capturing a dark atmosphere, while the lead guitars which are only used briefly are very melodic sounding black metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars which are only used briefly use finger picking and full chords to further enhance the dark atmosphere.
Vocals are mostly grim sounding and high pitched black metal screams along with some deeper vocals being utilized at times along with a brief use of clean singing and spoken word parts, while the lyrics are written in their native tongue and cover dark and depressive themes, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion this is another great recording from Merda Mundi and if you are a fan of raw and primitive sounding black metal, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Le Royaume" and "L' Hymne". RECOMMENDED BUY.
