This is as raw as it gets. So raw I bet it is unfinished and the band doesn’t even care. The three song long EP is simply named “Untitled” and the songs are titled “I”, “III” and “III”. As uninspiring as it gets.
It starts off with guitar pumping away and classic black vocals take over. Still extremely uninspiring. Absolutely nothing new under the (black) sun.
Then the music becomes far more interesting. Especially on the second track. The second track is by far the most mesmerising song on the EP.
The production isn’t bad if you leave out the first bit. During second song it gets more melodic and resembles doom metal far more than black metal. The vocals are complete rubbish to say the least. They would complement the music far more if they weren’t hiding so much underneath the music like a muddy puddle that can barely be heard. The vocals are like an anonymous unnecessary bit in the background.
With that being said this is, as it started out as, not very interesting. A bit more effort and a bit of a red thread should help in the nearest future, but this shouldn’t be something Terra should bother with in the nearest future if no interesting aspects are being added to this. There is enough of this mediocre, unfinished black metal out there.
