Album: Re Un
Label: Avantgarde Music
Névoa is a new black metal band from Portugal. Re Un is their second release, their debut coming out around this time last year. I remember listening to their debut, The Absence of Void, and really enjoying their bleak atmosphere and the distinctly Cascadian black metal sound. However, Re Un sees Névoa shifting their sound quite a bit, going from their Wolves in the Throne Room inspired sound to combination of two different sounds, one for each half of the album. The first half is more in line with psychedelic black metal like Aluk Todolo or Oranssi Pazuzu, while the second half of the album takes a heavier turn, reminding me of bands like Year of No Light and Altar of Plagues.
