Residing from the Czech Republic, atmospheric black and doom metal crafters Et Moriemur have submerged themselves into the world of extreme metal to provide such exquisite, exotic and elegant pieces of music and with this latest album Tamashii No Yama being released on Transcending Obscurity Records, I knew right off the bat that two well known genres being combined together to create these amazing musical wonders and signatures have blew me away. There’s elements of traditional death metal in the mix but the focal point of the record is they’re showcasing black metal arrangements well as doom making the record atmospheric in giving these musicians the finest talent and ability to really give a sense of delivery and character making the songs give such a emotional factor.
I’ll also like to add the key elements of listening to this album is not only they’ve concentrated in wanting to make beautifully crafted soundscapes but also giving amazing contents and lyrical themes in which this magnificent creation discusses Japanese themes and they’ve franky outdone themselves making the record explosive and explorative without losing their core. Songs for example such as Oshima, Otsuki and the closure 14 minute track of the melodically driven song of Takamagahara you’ll get piano strings, gothic doom esque melodies, doom metal like production and the instrumentals providing a funeral doom almost symphonic death metal branch that really sets the bar skyhigh as I’m listening to a My Dying Bride, Evoken, Paradise Lost and Septicflesh album which not only are all fantastic bands in their own retrospect but the influences and drawing creativeness Et Moriemur has brought to the table is full of imagination which I give them massive props and credit in giving every song a chance to deliver and execute when its necessary. Tamashii No Yama is a album you’ll need to fully transition and experience the most immaculate, competitive and detailed records of 2022.
Overall Score: 9.0/10
