Switzerland's solo project Enoid have returned with a new recording which continues the raw, brutal and misanthropic black metal style of his previous releases and this is a review of his 2020 album "Negation Du Corps" which was released as a joint effort between Satanath Records and The Ritual Productions.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking which also gives the more more of a raw feeling. Vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams along with the tracks also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very dark yet melodic style while melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing. Some of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with the music also having its brutal moments as well as the songs also adding in a decent mixture of both old school and modern influences.
As the album progresses a brief use of clean playing can also be heard, the closing track is also an instrumental as well as the album also being more melodic than the previous recordings. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in his native tongue and cover death, misanthropy and reflection themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Enoid and if you are a fan of raw, brutal and misanthropic black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dans le pays de I'oubli" "Ses crocs plantes dans ma chair" and "Le regard blanc". 8 out of 10.
