Nigrum Pluviam are a solo project from France that plays an old school form of black metal and this is a review of his 2021 album "Eternal Fall Into The Abyss" which will be released in July by Signal Rex.
A synth orientated intro starts off the album before going into a heavier direction while the vocals ar e mostly tortured yet high pitched black metal screams. Most of the music is also very heavily rooted in the 90's French style along with the songs also capturing a very lo-f atmosphere at times.
The songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while a great portion of the tracks are also very long and epic in length. At times the music also gets very minimalistic sounding along with a small amount of dark sounding melodies also being added into some of the guitar riffing, as the album progresses synths also return as well as mixing in with the heavier sections of the recording briefly and a small amount of clean playing can also be heard on the closing song..
Nigrum Pluviam plays a style of black metal that is very raw and old school in the 90's French Black Legions tradition. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Anti Christianity, Misanthropy and Death Of Mankind themes.
In my opinion Nigrum Pluviam are a very great sounding raw and old school black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Whisper Of The Black Rain" "Devotion To Absolute Evil" and "From The Earth to The Abyss From Suffering". 8 out of 10.
