Mortum/The Rites Of Depopulation/Horizon Productions/2011 CD Review


  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.
