Enbilulugugal/Gnashing Of Teeth/Rites ov The Blakk Goat ov The Woods with a Thoudand Young/Dipsomaniac Records/2012 Split Album Review


  This  is  a  review of  a  split  album  between  California's  Enbilugugal  and Gnashing  Of  Teeth  called  "Rites  ov  The  Blakk  Goat  ov  The  Woods  with  a  Thousand  Young"  which  was  released  by  Dipsomaniac  Records  in  2012  and  we  will  start  of  the  review  with  Enbiligugal  a  band  that  plays  a very  raw  and  primitive  from  of  occult  black  metal/  noise.

  Drums  range  from  slow, mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  blast  beats  being  utilized  at  times,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  primitive  riffing  that  dominates  throughout  the  recording,  as  for  the  sound  effects  they  bring  in  elements  of  harsh  power  electronics/noise.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  black  metal  riffs  that  are  very  raw  and  primitive  sounding  along  with  some  heavy  distortion  that  brings  the  harsh  noise  elements  to to  music and  there  are  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  present  on t heir  side  of  the  recording.

  Vocals  are  all  high  pitched  black  metal/noise  screams,  while  the  lyrics  cover  Occultism  and  Necronomicon  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  noisy,  raw  and  primitive  sound  to  it.

  In  my  opinion  Enbilugugal  are  a  very  great  sounding  hybrid  of  harsh  noise  and  primitive  occult  black  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  their  side  of  the  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Serpent  Goat  King"  and  "The  Doom  Within  A  Black  Mist".  RECOMMENDED.

  Next  up  is  Gnashing  Of  Teeth  another  band  that  plays  a  mixture  of  primitive  occult  black  metal  and  harsh  noise.

  Drums  range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  playing  with  some  fast  playing  and  blast  beats  being  present  on their  side  of  the  recording, while  the  sound  effects  bring  elements  of  harsh  noise  to  the  recording, as  for  the  bass  playing it  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  are  coming  out  of  the  guitars.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid paced  to  fast  black  metal  riffs  that  are  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sounding  with  some  clean  playing  as  well  as  a  great  amount  of  heavy  distortion  being  thrown  behind  the  riffing  which  brings  in  elements  of  drone  and  there  are  no  guitar  solos  and  leads  present  on  their  side  of  the  recording.

  Vocals  are  mostly  high  pitched  black  metal/noise  screams  along  with  some  deep  demonic  growls  and  spoken  word  chanting,  while  the  lyrics  cover  Occultism  and  Necronomicon  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  to  it.

  In  my  opinion  Gnashing  Of  Teeth  are  a  very  great  sounding  hybrid  of  primitive  occult  black  metal  and  harsh  noise  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  their  side  of  the recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Plague  Of  Human  Spirit"  and  "Admiring  The  Dark Endless.  RECOMMENDED.

  In  conclusion  I  feel  this  is  a  very  great  sounding  split  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  raw  and  primitive  sounding  black  metal  and  harsh  noise,  you  should  add this  album  to  your  collection.  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
