Ferentes Tenebris are a band from Mexico that plays a progressive form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2019 ep "Corpore Insepulto".
Clean playing starts off the ep along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them. A great amount of melody can also be heard in the heavier riffing while the vocals bring in a mixture of black metal screams and death metal growls as well as the music also getting very progressive sounding at times.
Female vocals can also be heard briefly while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the music more of a raw feeling. The songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as a couple of the tracks being very long and epic in length.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style while clean playing is also brought into the later tracks along with a brief use of spoken word parts and as the ep progresses a small amount of clean male vocals can also be heard. The production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover introspection, misanthropy and darkness of the human condition.
In my opinion Ferentes Tenebris are a very great sounding progressive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Gates Of Hell" and "Reverie". 8 out of 10.
