This is a review of a split album between Italy's Kalaallit Nunaat and U.S.A's Au Revior called "Memories From Desolate Battlefields" which was released by This Winter Will Last Forever" and we will start off the review with Kalaallit Nunaat a solo project that plays a very raw and atmospheric form of black metal.
His side of the split starts out with some atmospheric sounding synths before adding in some heavy yet melodic riffing while both of his tracks are very long and epic in length along with some acoustic guitars also being used briefly and when the music speeds up a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs a more raw feeling.
Blast beats can also be heard during the faster sections of the songs while the vocals a re mostly high pitched black metal screams along with the music also being very heavily rooted in the 90's as well as some experimental elements and mid paced riffing on the second track, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover cosmography, fantasy frost and mythology themes.
In my opinion Kalaaallit Nunaat are a very great sounding raw and atmospheric black metal solos project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out his side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Miracles Through The Gate of Time".
Next up is Au Revior a band that plays an atmospheric form of post black metal.
His side of the split starts out with some atmospheric sounds while his track is over 18 minutes in length along with the vocals being mostly high pitched black metal screams and the music sticks to a very slow and repetitive sound, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Au Revior are a very great sounding atmospheric post black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split.
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of raw and atmospheric black metal. 8 out of 10.
