This EP is just sad. Is this what "Raw" has honestly come to mean for some people? Are there really underground droolers who lay around and fap over this kind of shit? Nokturnal Forest is a Syrian one-man band and this is the first EP they have released after the expected demos and splits. There's not really much to say about this except: stop doing that. The recording on this is so feeble it sounds like somebody humming into a waxpaper comb. The riffs are derivative and repetitive, the songs are boring, the vocals are boring, the whole album is boring.

And spelling "nocturnal" one way in the band name and another way in the album title? Lame.
