Nefastu are a band from Portugal that plays a very raw form of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 ep "Obscura Transcenddencia" which will be released in Decmeber by Purodium Rekords.
Distorted amp noises start off the ep before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them while the vocals are all high pitched black metal screams.
A great amount of 90's influences can also be heard in the bands musical style while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with one track being very long and epic in length, the music does not add much in the way of melodies, solos and leads and always remains very raw and heavy.
Nefastu plays a style of black metal that is very raw and traditional sounding, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Portuguese and cover dark themes.
In my opinion Nefastu are a very great sounding raw black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Na Imensidao do Vazio". 8 out of 10.
