Atra Mors are a duo with members from Italy and the United States that plays a very cold and misanthropic form of black metal and this is a review of his 2019 album "Dominate Upon The Throne Of Might" which will be released September 5th by Humanity's Plague Productions.
Ritualistic soundscapes start off the album before going into a heavier direction along with the riffs also adding in a decent amount of dark sounding melodies. When the music speeds up a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling.
Vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. A lot of the music also brings in a good amount of 90's influences along with all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them, synths are also mixed in with the heavier sections of the music and a few of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Atra Mors plays a style of black metal that is very raw, ritualistic, cold and misanthropic sounding. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover negativity, misanthropy, depression, darkness and esoteric themes.
In my opinion Atra Mors are a very great sounding cold and misanthropic black metal duo and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Moonlit Shadows" "Matter-Anti-Matter" and "Necromisanthrope". 8 out of 10.
