Clinging To The Trees Of A Forest Fire/Nesseria/Throatruiner Records/2011 Split Review

This is a review of a split between Denver Colorado's Clinging To the Trees Of A Forest Fire and France's Nesseria which was released by Throatruiner Records and we will start of the review with Clinging To the Trees Of A Forest Fire who plays a mixture of blackened grindcore and filthy sludge.

Drums range from slow, mid apced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound to it.

Rhythm guitars combine noisecore, black metal, grindcore and sludge together to creat a sound of their own mixed in with alot of noisy distortion and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.

Vocals are mostly high pitched noisecore/grind screams mixed in with alot of black metal influences, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very dark,,heavy, raw and primitive sound to it.

In my opinion this is a great improvement from Clinging To The Trees Of A Forest Fore and if you like noisecore mixed with black metal and sludge, you should check out the music on this split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Opaque" and "Lower Than Life, High As The Sky ". RECOMMENDED.

Next up is Nesseria form France that plays a mixture of black metal, crustcore, noise and hardcore.

Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, w hile the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine black metal, crust, noise and hardcore together to create their own sound with a good amount of noisy distortion and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on their side of the recording.

Vocals are all high pitched screams that combine black metal with noisecore, while the lyrics are written in French and cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very dark and heavy sound to it.

In my opinion Nesseria are a very great sounding black metal/crust/noise/hardcore hybrid band with the best music on this split and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Freistadt " and "Fils De La Fin De Siecle". REOMMENDED.

In my opinion this is a very great split album that I would recommend to all fans of black metal, sludge, noise and grindcore. RECOMMENDED BUY.

Omission/Merciless Jaws From Hell/War Productions 2012 Cassette Review

Omission are a band from Spain that plays a very brutal form of black/thrash metal and this is a review of their album "Merciless Jaws From Hell" which was originallyy released in 2011 but re-issued on Cassete in 2012 by War Productions.

Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast 80's style black/thrash metal riffs that are a very raw and primitive sounding, while the lead guitars are very distorted and chaotic sounding thrash metal guitar solos and leads mixed in with some traditional metal influences.

Vocals are mostly snarling black/thrash screams done 80's styles with some deep growls being thrown in at times as welll as a brief use of rough clean singing mixed in with some thrash gang style chorus, while the lyrics cover hateful and dark themes with an occult edge, as for the production it has a very powerful, heavy, raw and primitive sound to it.

In my opinion Omission are a very great sounding old school black/thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Northmen Wrath" "Fuckin Alone" "Day Of Your Death Arives" and "Ianus Rex Infernorum". RECOMMENDED BUY.
