UTU are a band from Brazil that plays a very raw form of black metal and this is a review of their 2017 cassette compilation "Omnipotentis" which was released by Depressive Illusions.
A very classical and war orientated sound starts off the compilation before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. Vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Clean playing can also be heard briefly while the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic style, Throughout the compilation you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the music also being very heavily rooted in the 90's style as well as some spoken word samples also being added into certain sections of the recording and as the cassette progresses the riffs also start incorporating more melody.
UTU plays a style of black metal that is very raw and old school in the 90's tradition, the production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics cover Misanthropy, Anti Christianity and Occultism themes.
In my opinion UTU are a very great sounding raw, misanthropic and old school black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this compilation. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Pater Misanthropy" and "Possession For The Utu's Sigil". 8 out of 10.
