Animus Mortis/Thresholds Of Insanity/Debemur Morti Productions/2005 CD Review


  Animus  Mortis  are  a  band  from  Chile  that  plays  a  cold,  atmospheric,  and  desolate  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2005  album  "Thresholds  Of  Insanity"  which  was  released  by  Debemur  Morti  Productions.

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  blast  beats  being  utilized  at  times,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  strong  and  powerful  sound  with  heavy  riffing  that  dominates  throughout  the  recording,  as  for  the  synths  and  sound  effects  when  they  are  utilized  briefly  bring  a  very  dark  and  ambient  sound  to  the  music.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  black  metal  riffs   that  combine  depressive, cold,  raw  and  primitive  elements  together  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own  along  with  some  melody  and  atmospheric  elements,  while  the  lead  guitars  are  very  atmospheric  sounding  black  metal guitar  solos  and  leads.

  Vocals  are  mostly  grim  sounding  black  metal  screams  along  with  a  brief  use  of  deep  growls,  while  the  lyrics  cover  darkness  and  cold  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  to  it  while  you  can  still hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  this  recording.

  In  my  opinion  Animus  Mortis  are  a  very  great  sounding  cold  and  desolate  black  metal b and  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Dying  Murmur"  and  "Ethereal  Dimensions".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
