The Mirror Void
Black metal assault that is hard to endure
Another one man unit, Nekrasov has released some pretty harsh black metal on 'The Mirror Void'.
This is black metal reduced to its most basic state, something that sounds pretty simplistic but that is anything but. The drumming is non-stop and rarely changes tempo throughout the album. The vocals are so muffled that it sounds otherworldly and severely distorted. The guitars are a wall of fuzz until they come through with unexpected clarity and severity.
This one will definitely worm its way inside your head, take up residence there and slowly twist your brain into a tangled mass of nerves and synapses left for dead. I could barely make it through one listen because it was so intense and noisy, not that those are bad things mind you. You'll need to be in a special sort of mood to endeavor listening to this more than once.
