Ba'a are a band from France that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays a very melodic and atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Deus Qui Non Mentitur" which will be released in April by Osmose Productions.
A very dark sounding intro starts off the album along with some spoken word parts before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style.
Vocals are mostly angry sounding black metal screams while most of the tracks are very long and epic in length. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with all of the musical instruments on the recording also having a very powerful sound to them.
At times the musical gets very atmospheric sounding along with some keyboards also being added into certain sections of the recording. Elements of doom metal can also be heard in the slower sections of the music as well as the riffs also adding in a decent amount of melody and as the album progresses a brief use of clean playing can also be heard. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in French and cover the relationship of man to the divine, and the damages caused to this connection by man's selfish pride and ego
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Ba'a and if you are a fan of atmospheric and melodic black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Titan" and "Un Bucher pour piedestal". 8 out of 10.
