This is a review of another recording from Tonttu which continues their martial, industrial, neo-folk, metal sound with the album being released by Panicmachine in 2013 and called "Nekrognomekon".
The album starts out with distorted loops before adding in acoustic guitars and a more neo folk sound and after the intro symphonic and classical elements are brought into the recording along with samples and spoken word parts which also leads up to militant drumming.
As the album continues the music starts bringing in more traces of experimental and industrial music and as time goes on by guitar riffs solos are brought into the music and the album s tarts having a more atmospheric metal feeling to it and on one of the tracks the music speeds up a bit and goes into a more black metal direction which also comes out in the vocals at times and they never stray too far away from the neo folk sound as well as bringing in melodic vocals at times and the last few tracks have more traces of electronic music.
With this album Tonttu continue their neo folk sound while also having more industrial and black metal influences this time around and all of the music has a very original sound on this recording along with a great amount of diversity.
Song lyrics are written in Finnish and cover gnomes, occultism and Lovecraft themes, while the production has a very strong, dark and powerful sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording as well as one of the tracks being long and epic in length,.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Tonttu and if you are a fan of metal, industrial and neo folk, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Suurin Petos" "Taisteluni" and "Saunatoni". 8 out of 10.
