0-Nun are a solo project from Brazil that plays a very atmospheric and experimental form of occult black metal and this is a review of his 2020 compilation album "The Shamanic Trilogy" which was released by Brucia Records and consists of his first 3 ep's.
Orchestra sounds start off the album while also mixing in with the heavier sections of the music at times. Ritualistic spoken word parts can also be heard in some parts of the compilation while the vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can also be heard.
Acoustic guitars can also be heard briefly and they also enhance the experimental atmosphere of the music. The riffs also add in a decent amount of melody along with the music also having its symphonic and atmospheric moments and a great portion of the tracks are also very long and epic in length.
Keyboards are also utilized quite a bit throughout the compilation along with the tremolo picking also giving the music more of a raw feeling. The songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as the vocals also getting very deep and demonic sounding at times.
Shamanistic style folk instruments are also into music briefly on the second installment of the 3 part trilogy. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style as well as the music also having its progressive moments. All of the drum beats are also programmed and samples can also be heard on some of the tracks.
When percussion is utilized it also gives the songs more of a tribal atmosphere, the third installment also shows the music going into more of an avant garde direction. the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Inexistence, Nothingness, Void and the absence of being in more of a shamanistic and occult way and also bringing in references to Egyptian Mythology.
In my opinion 0-Nun are a very great sounding atmospheric, experimental and occult black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this compilation. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "I, The Void Embrace" "I Will Only Exist In Absence" "The Last Acres of Amazonia" and "The SOund Of Antimatter". 8/5out of 10.
