Doesn't really set itself apart from the pack
COMMENTS:
Greytomb's 3 track EP 'Monumental Microcosm' is a solid dose of atmospheric black metal but it really doesn't do much in distinguishing the band from countless other acts in the genre. You get batches of black metal that is played quite well fading in to clean, melodic portions that return to black metal after a brief repose. The vocals are a mix of high pitched screams and black metal rasps. Production-wise the album is very tight and crisp and provides a very immersive listening experience. The lack of differentiation from the other bands in the genre really causes this album to stay in the mix instead of rising to the top.
