Terra are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a cascadian influenced form of atmospheric black metal and this is a review of their untitled album which will be released in March by Hibernacula Records.
A very distorted sound starts off the album before adding in heavy riffing and after a minute high pitched black metal screams are added into the music along with some melodic leads and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and when the music speeds up it displays more of a raw style of black metal that also utilizes a great amount of blast beats.
All 3 of the tracks are very long and epic in length and also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and while black metal screams are utilized at times along with a great amount of depressive screams, the music focuses more on the instrumental side and at times atmospheric post black metal elements can be heard in certain sections of the recording and they are usually mixed in with the melodic guitar leads.
Terra creates a very raw and epic style of atmospheric black metal on all 3 of the tracks and they mix in the cascadian elements of the Northwestern black metal scene to make their music sound a lot more creative, the production sounds very heavy and powerful while lyrics are very rarely used.
In my opinion Terra are a very great sounding raw and atmospheric cascadian influenced black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACK "II", 8 out of 10.
