This is a review of another album from Mortum which continues their atmospheric, raw and primitive black metal sound which was released in 2011 by Horizon Productions under the album title "The Rites Of Depopulation".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, 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 atmospheric black metal riffs that are very heavy, raw and primitive sounding with some melody being thrown into the riffing and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are all grim sounding black metal screams, while the lyrics cover Misanthropy, Darkness, Death and Depression, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Mortum and if you are a fan of atmospheric, raw and primitive black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Prophecizing The Fall Of Mankind" "Isolation" and "The Rites Of Depopulation". RECOMMENDED BUY.
