Atra Vetosus are a band from Australia that plays a very atmospheric and melodic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "Voices From The Eternal Night" which was released by Immortal Frost Productions.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the keyboards when they are utilized bring a very dark and atmospheric sound 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 melodic black metal riffs that are very dark and melodic sounding, while the lead guitars are very dark and melodic sounding black metal guitar solos and leads, as for the classical guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking and full chords to enhance the dark atmosphere of the recording.
Vocals range from grim sounding and high pitched black metal screams to some clean singing and spoken word parts, while the lyrics cover dark and metaphysical themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and dark sound with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Atra Vetosus are a very great sounding atmospheric melodic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Skies Of Obsidian Rain" "Spirit Of The Forgotten Woods" and "Tortured By The Light Of A Thousand Star". RECOMMENDED BUY.
