Sweden's Netherbird have returned with a new recording which shows the music going into more of a melodic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Into The Vast Uncharted" which will be released in September by Eisenwald.
A very heavy and melodic sound starts off the album while the solos and leads also use a great amount of melody. Vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams along with some symphonic elements also being mixed in with the heavier sections of the music briefly and when the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard.
All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. Elements of death metal can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording as well as some growls also being utilized at times.
Clean vocals can also be heard in certain sections of the recording as well as all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them along with some songs also adding in a small amount of classical guitars, some of the tracks are also very long and epic in length. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness and struggle themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Netherbird and if you are a fan of melodic black and death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Saturnine Ancestry" "Lunar Pendulum" and "Nexus of Unlight". 8 out of 10.
