Tenebrositas are a 1 man band from Croatia that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very dark, old school and raw form of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2014 album "Embraced By The All Devouring Void".
Bell sounds start off the album and bring in a very dark and ritualistic feeling to the recording along with some more clean yet musical sounds a few seconds later and after the intro the music starts going for a more fast and raw black metal direction along with blast beats and high pitched grim screams.
Just like with the previous recording the music on the new album sticks to the early 90's sound of European black metal and their is also a mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts throughout the recording as well as a good mixture of both Norwegian and Finnish metal metal influences from the earlier days of the second wave.
The old school black metal sound dominates the album from beginning to end of the recording with the music being very dark, raw and emotional sounding as well as evoking a hateful atmosphere and the music is so heavily rooted in the 90's sound to the point where if you where hearing this album and had no knowledge who was doing the music you would probably think you where listening to an underrated album from 92 and th e album closes with some clean guitars.
Tenebrositas remains true to his old school black metal sound and stays away from any 3rd or 4th wave black metal sounds with his music and sticks to a truer black metal direction, the production is very dark, raw and old school sounding and the lyrics cover darkness and sorrow themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Tenebrositas and if you are a fan of raw and old school black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Slavery, Torment And Death" "Forlorn Path to Obscurity" and "To Dwell Among The Spectors". 8 out of 10.
