No surprise here from Patria – this 26-minute EP is packed with raw, gloomy, no-frills Black Metal which is pretty much in the same vein as the albums I reviewed last year. Tortured vocals – sometimes agonizing rasps – kind of drive this in many places, and the music just feel like a voyage through a tortured mind. Even the fast passages here feel slow, and one just cannot shake the feeling of despair conveyed by the atmosphere. Lo-fi, raw, melancholic and sometimes vicious. The aural equivalent of having a bad day.
