This is a review of a split album between U.S.A's Vampirska the United Kingdom's Glemt called "By Sanguinarian Will.." which will be released in 2021 by Inferna Profundus Records and we will start off the review with Vampirska a solo project that plays a very raw and vampiric form of black metal.
His side of the split starts out with a very dark, heavy and lo-fi sound before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams along with the music also adding in a great amount of 90's era French influences.
All of his tracks are also very long and epic in length along with the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with all of the riffing being done on power chords as well as always sticking to a heavier direction. The production sounds very dark, raw, lo-fi and old school while the lyrics cover vampirism, melancholic, pestilence and plague themes.
In my opinion Vampiriska are a very great sounding raw and vampiric black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should c heck out his side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "A Curse Bearing The Nocturnal Plague II".
Next up is Glemt a solo project that plays a very raw, depressive and misanthropic form of black metal.
His side of the split starts out with some dark yet melodic guitar solos and leads along with a brief use of clear chants before adding in some grim yet high pitched black metal screams. The songs also add in a decent amount of depressive elements while the faster sections of the songs also add in a great amount of blast beats.
When tremolo picking is utilized it also gives the music more of a raw feeling along with the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. Melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing as well as a couple of the tracks also being long and epic in length, the songs also add in a decent amount of 90's and early 2000's influences and synths can also be heard on a few tracks and the closing track is an ambient instrumental. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover suicide, sorrow, misanthropy, death and occultism themes.
In my opinion Glemt are a very great sounding raw, depressive and misanthropic black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out his side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUD E "Chambers Of Burning Mace" and "The Moon Weeps Blood And Bestows The Truth".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and would recommend it to all fans of raw, misanthropic, depressive, vampyric and occult black metal. 8 out of 10.
