This is another review of an album from Nuklearenpest which continues their raw and primitive sound with the cassette being released in 2011 under the name "Monuments" as a joint effort between Horizon and Fallen Empire Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good 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, as for the synths they are only used on the last song and they a dark, ambient and atmospheric sound to the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that are very raw and primitive sounding in the old school tradition and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording, as for the acoustic guitars they are only used briefly and full chords to add more variety to the recording.
Vocals are mostly grim sounding and high pitched black metal screams with some deep growls and samples, while the lyrics cover Anti Zionism, Misanthropy, and Death, 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 Nuklearenpest and if you are a fan of raw and primitive sounding black metal, you should check out this cassette. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Gates Are Burning" and "From Ploughshares, Let Sword Upon Sword Be Wrought". RECOMMENDED BUY.
