Natur - Head Of Death (CD Review)
Dwelling in the filth-ridden depths of the underground Metal brotherhood, New York's Natur have created a distinct reputation for themselves, blending the arcane and the obscure into a sound drenched in the very essence of Metal's formative years.
With their debut full length 'Head of Death', Natur expand on the excitement caused by their early demos and 7" with a set of songs exploring the mystical and the macabre. 'Vermin Rift' explores the terror of the night, 'Goblin Shark' relates the tale of demented possessed sailor out for revenge, while 'Head of Death' itself predicts the horror of what happens when your time is up.
Deliberately archaic, Natur take delight in highlighting the eerie atmospheres of the Metal heroes of yore - Mercyful Fate, Angel Witch and Venom - and adding their own twisted vision of the horror and fantastical that make up their world. With their underground cred in no doubt thanks to the patronage of Darkthrone's Fenriz, and their appearance at the Live Evil Festival in London as well as support slots with High on Fire at the invitation of Thrasher Magazine, 'Head of Death' should see Natur spread
their unholy gospel even wider.
American take on NWOBHM, pretty good too.
