If anything stands Hypnotic Dirge Records seal is in its eagerness to edit jobs with very different styles bands or unusual proof, again, is this edition of netra , one band member who comes from French soil and with this "Sorbyen" take your 2nd job. This is a work that, over the 12 tracks, does not hesitate to combine styles like Black Metal, jazz, electronic music, sounds depressive, ... all to create a trance and despair and this is achieved by combining voice recordings highlighting clean vocals, others dying, torn black voices ... and we add an instrumentation which highlights cutting dark melodies, synthesizers creating that atmosphere dense and cold passages where jazz rhythms intersect with bursts of black metal riffs and parts where the rhythm section is presented in a heavy sound ... and then moments where the sound becomes very electronic and dance cut! ... all to create compositions bleak and dark metal cutting. It is clear that this is a very slow work of assimilation and intended for a small group of fans.
