N.K.R.T are a solo project from France that plays a musical style he describes as being ritual, organic, black, tortured, ambient drone and this is a review of his 2016 cassette "Niger Ritus" which was released by Tour De Garde Productions.
Field recordings start off the demo along with some Mongolian and Tibetan style chanting in the background which also gives the music more of a shamanistic, ritualistic and occult atmosphere and both of the tracks are also very long and epic in length and after awhile bells and cymbals are added onto the recording.
Melodic Gregorian chants can also be heard at times along with a great amount of ethnic music elements and grim black metal screams can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and the music also uses bones, wood, clay, and stones which gives the music more of a stone age shamanistic feeling and drones along with death rattles are also added into some parts of the tracks and the last song was recorded live.
N.K.R.T plays a musical style that takes black metal, ambient, drone and mixes it with ethnic, shamanistic, ritualistic and experimental music to create something very original, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Occultismthemes.
In my opinion N.K.R.T are a very great sounding ritual, organic, black, tortured, ambient drone solo project and if you are looking for something very original, you should check out this cassette. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Ante Diem XII Kalendus Iulias Sancta Crucis Ritus". 8 out of 10.
