This is a review of a split ep between New Zealand/United Kingdom's Barshasketh and Poland's Outre both bands which also have had their previous works reviewed in this blog along with the ep being released on November 20th by Third Eye Temple and we will start off the review with Barshasketh a band that plays a very raw form of black metal.
Their side of the split starts out with atmospheric synths while their track is also 7 minutes in length before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also utilizes a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while the vocals are mostly grim black metal screams.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion while the song also brings in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are based on the philosophical writings of Martin Heidegger.
In my opinion this is another great sounding track from Barshasketh and if you are a fan of fast black metal, you should check out their side of the split.
Next up is Outre which shows their music going into more of an aggressive style of black metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a very fast, heavy, raw and technical sound along with some angry black metal vocals while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them as well as a great amount of blast beats and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody.
Throughout their side of the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the solos and leads bring in a very melodic and atmospheric musical style, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics as well with the previous band are based upon the philosophical writings of Martin Heidegger.
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and would recommend it to all fans of fast and aggressive black metal. 8 out of 10.
