Utburd are a solo project from Russia that plays a very atmospheric and depressive form of black metal and this is a review of his 2018 album "The Horrors Untold" which was released by Satanath Records.
Tragic sounding keyboards start off the album along with a variety of many different sounding keys which also mixes in with the heavier sections of the music at times while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic style as well as the vocals being mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with one track also introducing clean guitars and nature sounds onto the recording as well as a couple of later songs also adding in a small amount of spoken word parts and whispers, all of the music sticks to either a slow or mid paced musical direction and the album closes with an instrumental.
Utburd plays a style of black metal that is very atmospheric and depressive sounding, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover the writings of H.P Lovecraft and Death themes.
In my opinion Utburd are a very great sounding atmospheric and depressive black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Rise Of Dagon" "Pickman's Truimph" and "Waiting For Death Is Worse". 8 out of 10.
