Humut Tabal's approach is more classic, more elaborated and way more organic. Playful guitars, drums and bass aren't here "just because" but to serve a purpose in creating an intricate soundscape. Unlike Weoran's scenario, Humut Tabal make theirs fluid, intriguing and surprising. There is something to identify with and something to bring shadows of unease. Call it "evil vibe," call it "enchantment" or call it "bloody mindedness" Humut Tabal have it. Even though the ideas aren't great in absolute terms, you are listening to actual music and actual inspiration here, and every part is calculated but intuitive enough for you to just relax and let it flow. The bass is singing, the vocals are hitting and the drums are playing melodies... Well, not actually, but all of them are playing music. Humut Tabal don't rely on sound, preconceptions, loyalty or image. They do black metal art, whatever it takes, and wherever it takes them. And unlike most black metal bands, the more you listen, the more you will hear, and, occasionally, want to come back. The triumphant ending of HateThrone Ascension alone makes listening to this whole release worth it, but it's far from being the only highlight.
This is not just another split album.
