Morkera are an anonymous band from Croatia that plays a very raw form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2022 album "Entangled Excavations" which will be released in June.
A very fast and raw sound starts off the album along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. Dark sounding melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing while the vocals are a mixture of deep growls a nd grim black metal screams and the songs also add in a good balance between old school and modern influences.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while keyboards can also be heard briefly on a couple of songs. A lot of the music also shows an influence from the classic Eastern European style along with a couple of the tracks also being long and epic in length and the recording also closes with a couple of instrumentals.
Morketa plays a style of black metal that is very raw, fast, aggressive and traditional sounding. The production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Morkera are a very great sounding raw and aggressive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Muse" and "Overseer". 8 out of 10.
