DOWNFALL OF NUR "umbras e forestas" LP
"Umbras e Forestas is the best of two distinct worlds. If you like your black metal raw, underproduced, its potential only grasped by those conscripted to the BM army, you have that. Their screams avoid the usual, meek throating you typically find for more of a rotting sound, but the real moments of captivation are how they balance that with ambiance and folk, transporting the listener into a culture perceived across centuries, real because of the hands that fashioned the lens. The empty spaces of storms and archaic folk take this to where all black metal should go."
