This is a review of a split ep between Ukraine's Vidmershly Shmat and Obrij which was released by Neformat Family and we will start off the review with Vidmershiy Shmat a band that plays a mixture of black and sludge metal.
Their side of the split starts out with some folk instruments before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams as well as some death metal growls also being utilized at times and the slower sections of the song also bring in elements of sludge metal, melodies can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing and all of t he musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover depression, grief, hopelessness and death themes.
In my opinion Vidmershly Shmat are a very great sounding mixture of black and sludge metal and if you are a fan of t hose musical genres, you should check out t his band.
Next up is Obrij a band that plays death metal.
Their side of the split starts out with some dark yet heavy riffing while melodies can also be heard in the guitar riffing at times. Vocals are mostly death metal growls along with all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them and the whole track sticks to either a slow or mid tempo direction. The production sounds very dark and heavy and the lyrics cover witchcraft themes.
In my opinion Obrij are a very great sounding death metal band and if you are a fan of t his musical genre, you should check out their side of the split.
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and would recommend it to all fans of black, sludge and death metal. 8 out of 10.
