Nathir are a band from Norway that plays a mixture of ancient black and funeral doom metal and this is a review of their ep "Beinahruga" which will be released in 2021 by Signal Rex.
Dark ambient style soundscapes start off the ep along with some atmospheric sounding synths and evil voices a few seconds later, Elements of funeral doom metal can also be heard in the slower sections of the songs while the vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
One of the tracks is also very long and epic in length while the music also has its atmospheric moments. One of the songs also introduces clean vocals onto the recording along with the music showing some old school black metal touches and all of the tracks also stick to a slower musical direction as well as o couple of songs also adding in a brief use of spoken word parts.
Nathir plays a musical style that takes black and funeral doom metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover darkness themes.
In my opinion Nathir are a very great sounding mixture of ancient black and funeral doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Beinahruga" and "Vado Mori". 8 out of 10.
