Italy's Noise Trail Immersion have returned with a new recording which shows the music going for a mixture of dissonant black metal, post metal and mathcore and this is a review of their 2021 album "Curia" which was released by I, Voidhanger Records.
Bells start off the album while acoustic guitars can also be heard briefly while a couple of the songs are also instrumentals. When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard while the riffs also add in a great amount of dissonant structure and the vocals are done in a very angry blackened metal style.
At times the music also gets very technical sounding while growls can also be heard in some parts of the recording. Melodies are also utilized quite a bit throughout the recording along with the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the tracks are also very long and epic in length.
Elements of mathcore can also be heard in the mid tempo sections of the songs along with the music also mixing in a great amount of post metal influences. Acoustic guitars also make a return on some of the later tracks as well as one song also introducing clear vocals onto the album, synths can also be heard in certain parts of the recording. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Italian and cover spirituality and nihilism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Noise Trail Immersion and if you are a fan of dissonant black metal, post metal and mathcore, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Demiurgo del Non Ritorno" "Vanente" and "Coercizione". 8 out of 10.
