Once again Spain's Atrabilis and Negativa team up to create another split and this is a review of their 2015 7 inch which was released by Nebular Carcoma Records and we will start of the review with Atrabilis who also continues is experimental black metal sound of previous recordings.
His side of the split starts out with a very heavy and distorted sound along with his song being over 6 minutes in length and after a few seconds high pitched depressive black metal screams make their presence known on the track and the whole song sticks to a very slow musical direction while also retaining a very heavy and atmospheric side and spoken word samples can also be heard at times, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Isolation and Dadaism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding track from Atrabilis and if you are a fan of experimental black metal, you should check out his side of the split.
Next up is Negativa who also create another track of experimental black metal.
Their side of the split starts out with avant garde soundscapes and a few seconds later spoken word parts are added onto the track along with some distorted revers which leads up to more of a heavy , dark and atmospheric sound before going into a very fast and raw black metal direction that utilizes a great amount of blast beats and high pitched depressive screams and the song is 6 minutes in length and after a few minutes the music starts slowing down a bit, the production sound s very dark and r aw while the lyrics cover hateful and depressive themes.
In conclusion I feel this is another great sounding track from Negativa and if you are a fan of experimental, depressive black metal, you should check out their side of the split.
In conclusion i feel this is a very great sounding split and would recommend it to all fans of experimental and depressive black metal. 8 out of 10.
