Superterrestrial are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a space themed form of black metal with elements of dark ambient and this is a review of their self released 2019 album "The Void That Exists" which will be released on August 16th.
A sci-fi orientated sound starts off the album before going into more of a heavier and melodic musical direction. A couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the vocals are mostly high pitched black emtal screams that are mixed down low in the music and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
When tremolo picking is utilized it also gives the songs more of a raw feeling while the songs also bring in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. Keyboards are also added into some parts of the music as well as the songs also adding in some elements of ambient and the songs also have their atmospheric moments.
Superterrestrial plays a musical style that takes atmospheric black metal and mixes it with ambient to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very professional for being a s elf released recording while the lyrics cover space and cosmic themes.
In my opinion Superterrestrial are a very great sounding space and ambient influenced black emtal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Cannibal Coronal Mass Ejections" "Tidal Disruption Event" and "Heliacal Rising". 8 out of 10.
