Italy's Gort has returned with a new recording which continues the raw and misanthropic style of black metal from their previous releases and this is a review of their 2021 album "Humanitas Dolor mundi" which was released by Vacula Productions.
A very dark yet heavy sound starts off the album while you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording. When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats and tremolo picking can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling and the vocals a re mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams.
The music also adds in a great amount of old school influences while melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing. Some of the tracks also bring in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the music focusing mostly on the faster style as well as a couple of the tracks also being long and epic in length and all of the music also sticks to a heavier direction, one track also adds in a brief use of clean vocals and when guitar solos and leads are finally utilized they are also done in a very chaotic style.
On this recording Gort remains true to the raw and misanthropic style of black metal that they have established on previous releases. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover hate, war, destruction and misanthropy themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Gort and if you are a fan of raw and misanthropic black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "On Blackened Soil" "Negative Delusion" and "Eternal Denail". 8 out of 10.
