Precaria are a band from Mexico that plays a very raw and extreme form of black metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Precaria Ex Humanitas" which was released by Desavenencia.
A very fast, raw and lo-fi black metal sound starts off the album along with some blast beats and a few seconds later grim screams are added into the music and you can also hear a decent amount of melody being used in the songs along with all of the tracks being very long and epic in length as well as the band bringing in a lot of 90's influences.
Melodic chanting can be heard in certain sections of the recording and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they bring in more of a chaotic feeling to the recording while they also have their melodic moments at times along with the screams getting more high pitched and the few seconds of acoustic guitars on some of the track add in some atmospheric elements.
There is a great mixture between slow, mid paced and fast parts present throughout the recording and as the album progresses the music gets more dark and desolate while also keeping a very raw and heavy sound along with the music also bringing in a touch of early 2000's black metal and when clean playing is added into one of the tracks they also bring in more of a depressive and grim feeling to the bands musical sound.
Precaria plays a very misanthropic style of black metal that is very raw and extreme as well as being very true to this genre and avoiding all modern trends to play black metal the way it is meant to play, the production is very dark, raw and heavy while the lyrics are written in Spanish and cover Illumination Of Self, Occultism, Hatred, Mankind's Misery and Chaos Beyond Order themes.
In my opinion Precaria are a very great sounding raw and extreme black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Esturpo a la Conciencia" and "Violencia Como Pan De Cada Dia". 8 out of 10.
