This is a review of a split album between Brazil's Ferra-Reto and Russia's Hraesvelgr which was released in 2019 by Nailed Nazarene Industries and we will start off the review with Ferra-Reto a solo project that plays a mixture of experimental, ambient and harsh noise.
His side of the split starts out with some dark ambient style soundscapes and industrial style beats. At times the music also gets very experimental sounding while the track is also over 15 minutes in length, as the tracks progresses noises are power electronics are also added into the music and the production sounds very dark.
In my opinion Ferra-Reto is a very great sounding mixture of experimental, dark ambient and harsh noise and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project.
Next up is Haraesvelgr a solo project that plays a mixture of black, sludge, doom metal and drone.
His side of the split starts out with a very powerful sounding bass guitar while the slower sections of the music are also very heavily rooted in doom and sludge metal. The track is also over 12 minutes in length along with the music also mixing in elements of black metal drone, at times the song also gets very repetitive sounding as well as always sticking to a very slow yet instrumental musical direction.
In mu opinion Hraesvelgr is a very great sounding mixture of black, sludge, doom metal and drone and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project.
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of experimental, d ark ambient, drone, harsh noise, black, sludge and doom metal. 8 out of 10.
