Nierty/Essence Of The Nightbringer/2010 CD Review

Nierty are a band from the U.K that has had one of their previous albums reviewed in this zine that plays a very brutal from of blackened death metal/grind with industrial overtones and this is a review of their self released 2010 album "Essence Of The Nightbringer".

Drums range from slow to mid paced to fast drumming with a great 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, as for the synths which are only utilized briefly they bring a very dark and symphonic sound to the music.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast death/grind riffs that utilize a great amount of black metal and some industrial influences with a brief use of soft and clean playing, while the lead guitars are very chaotic sounding black/death metal guitar solos and leads that get very technical at times with a great amount of skill being utilized.

Vocals are a mixture of deep death metal growls, high pitched black metal screams and some spoken word and female clean singing parts, while the lyrics cover hateful, destructive and misanthropic themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and heavy sound to it.

In my opinion this is another great release from Nierty and if you are a fan of blackened death/grind, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Of Scorn And Stormblast" "While They Die Screaming" "Jaded Reflection" and "Sin Incarnate Life Cycle". RECOMMENDED BUY.
