Coprohammer are a solo project from Russia that has had music reviewed before in t his zine and on this recording focuses less on the raw side of black metal and but keeps the HNW elements and goes into more of a blackened harsh noise direction and this is a review of his 2020 album "Ruined Castle" which was released by Nailed Nazarene Industries.
Distorted sounding drones and slow yet heavy unconventional guitar riffing starts off the album while the music captures an improv atmosphere. The only track that is presented on the recording is also over 40 minutes in length along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
Elements of black metal can also be heard in some parts of the track while the song also has its repetitive moments along with the album sticking to a very same slow riff and guitar orientated harsh noises for the whole 40 minutes as well as all of the recording also sticking to a very slow and instrumental direction.
On this recording Coprohammer brings in more of a guitar orientated style of harsh noise that is also very heavily influenced by black metal while also keeping everything instrumental and the production sounds very dark, r aw and lo-fi.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Coprohammer and if you are a fan of blackened noise, you should check out this album. 8 out of 10.
