*This review was written in 2016 since this album was initially planned for a 2016 release through Sunmask at this time.

This  is  a  review  of  a  split  album  between  Nova  Scotis,  Canada's  Sea  Witch  and  Saskatchewan,  Canada's  Black Tremor  which  will  be  released  in  October  by  Sunmask  and  we  will  start  off  the  review  with  Sea  Witch  a  band  that  plays  an  instrumental  form  of  blackened  doom  metal.

  Their  side  of  the  split  starts  out  with  a very dark  ambient  orientated  sound  and  after  awhile  the  music  goes  into  a  heavier  and  more  atmospheric  direction  along  with  some  melodic  guitar  leads  and you  can  also  hear  a  lot  of  doom  metal  elements  in  the  bands  musical  style  which  they  also  mix  in  with  some  atmospheric black  metal  influences  and  most  of  their  tracks are  very  long  and  epic  in  length  and  contain  no  vocals  and  all  of  the  songs  stick  to  a  very  slow  musical  direction  and  the  production  sounds  very  professional.

  In  my  opinion  Sea  Witch  are  a  very  great  sounding  atmospheric  and  instrumental  blackened  doom  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  their  side  of  the split.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Green  Tide".

  Next  up  is  Black  Tremor  a  band  that  plays  an  instrumental  form  of  stoner  folk  doom.

  Their side  of  the  split  starts  out  with  clean  guitar  playing  along  with some  violins  a  few  seconds later  and  after  awhile the  add  in  drum  beats  and  bass  guitars  and  the  guitar  leads  bring  in  elements  of  post  metal  while  the  heavy  riffs  are  done  in  more  of  a  stoner  and  doom  metal fashion  and  both  of  the  tracks are  very  long  and  epic  and  stick  to  a  very  slow  musical  direction  and  the  production  sounds  very  professional.

  In  my  opinion  Black  Tremor  are  a  very  great  sounding  instrumental  stoner  folk/doom  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Hexus  Part  One".

  In  conclusion  i  feel  this  is  a  very  great  sounding  split  and I  would  recommend  it  to  all  fans  of  doom  or  blackened  doom  metal.
