Verminking are a band from France that plays an atmospheric form of post black metal and this is a review of their 2019 ep "2-48" which was released by Nailed Nazarene Industries.
Clean post rock style playing and spoken word parts start off the ep before going into a heavier musical direction which also introduces high pitched black emtal screams onto the recording. Clean singing can also be heard at times while the riffs also add in a decent amount of melody.
Keyboards are also added into some parts of the music while also mixing in some ambient elements along with the songs also having their depressive moments. At times the music also gets very atmospheric sounding as well as clean playing also returning on the songs and all of the tracks stick to either a slower mid tempo style.
Verminking plays a musical style that takes the atmospheric and depressive side of black metal and mixes it with post rock to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very dark and lo-fi while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Verminking are a very great sounding depressive post black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Hypnose". 8 out of 10.
