Black Rabbit – Warren Of Necrosis
What could go wrong if your album has got an opening track like ‘La Bestia’? Exactly nothing. The song has a very good variety of different parts and the influence from Obituary is very present in this song. The guitars and drums are very well cooperating to create fast and dragging parts in this song and the raw vocals are screaming their way through. The heavy part in the middle of the song paves the way to the colossal ending with an awesome build up a drum fill and finally a guitar solo. Just as sudden as this song started it ends and makes me curious about whats coming next.
‘Internal Death’ has a nice slow into but after that the song is increasing in speed and velocity. The vocals from Pieter are once again tearing the lyrics apart and with support from the guitars and drums they have created once again a very raw and powerful song. The drums in particular have a very leading rol in this song changing from solid grooves to slow blast beats. With a breakdown in the middle of the song followed by a slow what I can call a headbanging part the song once again catches your attention. Then again a guitar solo and before you know it the song ends.
The EP has 2 more songs but you will have to listen yourself. What I must say is that the song ‘Black Rabbit’ is the best song on this Ep.
The raw and dirty sound from Black Rabbit is a good one and the band have created their own sound but a lot of influences can be heard. The guitars on this album are good and the variety of riffs and rhythms is also a pleasant thing to listen to and in combination with the drums it has created a new vibe with some old influences. The bass guitar is doing its own parts very well and provides a solid sound. But is sometimes fading away because of all the other instruments. The vocals are awesome and unique, they are raw and also have a dry type of sound. The mixing and mastering is well done but as I already said the bass guitar sometimes fades away.
Lets see what Black Rabbit is going to do in the future.
