Greece's Vintermorke and Italy's Mountain Hermit are 2 solo projects that have been featured before in this zine and on this recording they team up together and mix their 2 different styles together and this is a review of their self released 2020 ep "Una faccia, uns razza" which will be released in September.
Sounds of glass breaking start off the ep before going into a very fast, raw and lo-fi musical direction which also sues a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams and the music also adds in some influences of the 90's era.
All of the drum beats are also programmed while the keyboards also gives the music more of a classic horror movie atmosphere when they are utilized as well as adding more diversity on another song and touches of ambient are also used at times. All of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
The songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts, clean playing and whispered vocals can also be heard briefly as well as all 3 of the tracks also sound very different from each other along with the closing song being very experimental. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover misanthropy and destruction themes.
In my opinion this is a very great sounding collaboration from Vintermork and Mountain hermit and if you are a fan of raw, lo-fi, misanthropic and experimental black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Cold Dead Souls". 8 out of 10.
