This is a review of another recording from Emanation which continues his spiritual approach to atmospheric, experimental black metal with the Cassette being called "One Soul, One Body, On Spirit" which was released by Black Mass Records.
The cassette starts off which avant garde soundscapes as well as grim vocals in the background before adding in synths and as time goes on by you can hear experimental noise elements start to kick in and as the music starts to progress drones and spoken word samples become a part of the music, black metal guitar riffs and depressive screams finally make their way on the album after 10 minutes and mix in with all the experimental, drone and noise sounds that are present on this recording.
After the first song which is over 40 minutes as well as being more of an experimental song, lo-fi elements start making a powerful presence on this recording and you can hear some dark and creepy guitars in the background which have a drone/doom metal feeling to them and as the album progresses it starts heading into a more atmospheric black metal direction and also mixes in with all of the drone and experimental elements to create a sound that is very original.
When the album moves on it adds in more up beat and mid paced elements as well as adding a suicidal touch to the screams and the album never forgets about its experimental roots which also take over a good part of the album in a serious way while never staying too far away from the black metal foundation which also dominates the last song and this is the perfect album to listen to during seances or raising the dead
Song themes cover Spirtism, Science and Occultism, while the production has a very dark and lo-fi sound with all of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Emanation and if you are a fan of experimental, atmospheric black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Metempsychosis" and "Immanent". RECOMMENDED BUY.
