Enoid are a solo project from Switzerland that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very raw form of anti human black metal and this is a review of his 2016 album "Exile Aux Confins Des Tourments" which will be released in May as a joint effort between Satanath Records and Black Plague Records.
A very dark soundscape starts off the album giving the music an ambient feeling before going into a very fast and raw black metal direction that utilizes a great amount of tremolo picking and brutal blast beats and a few seconds later high pitched black metal screams make their presence known on the recording.
When guitar leads are utilized they remain true to a raw style of black metal and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the vocals also get very grim at times while some of the riffs and leads also use morbid sounding melodies and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
There is also a brief use of spoken words and there is also a few seconds of avant garde elements while the music sticks mostly to a raw style of black metal and on some of the later tracks the vocals also get deeper in some parts of the songs and one song brings in the screams of tortured souls and clean playing is introduced on the last track which is also very long and epic in length.
Enoid creates another recording that remains true to the very fast and raw style of anti human black metal that he is known for, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in his native tongue cover death, misanthropy and reflections themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Enoid and if you are a fan of raw and anti human black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ces Cicatrices Dans Mon Ame" "Nouveau Cycle Destructeur" and "Ode A La Haine". 8 out of 10.
