Ossario are a band from Italy that plays a putrid form of black metal and this is a review of their self released and self titled 2020 ep.
Spoken word samples start off the ep before going into a heavier musical direction while the music also adds in a decent amount of thrash metal elements. Vocals are mostly angry sounding black emtal screams while the faster sections of the songs also add in a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the music more of a raw feeling.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the songs also add in a good amount of 90's and 80's influences. Dark sounding melodies can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing along with all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them and the whole recording also sticks to a heavier direction.
Ossario plays a style of black emtal that is very raw and old school adding in touches of both the first and second waves as well as some elements of thrash metal but still retaining a very modern day aggression. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover darkness, death and violence themes.
In my opinion Ossario are a very great sounding putrid black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "We're All Born To Die" and "Torment Sweet Torment". 8 out of 10.
