Tulus are a band from Norway that h as had music reviewed before in this zine and on this recording played a rock influenced form of Norwegian black metal and this is a review of their 1996 album "Pure Black Energy" which was re-issued in 2021 by Soulseller Records and also consists of 1991 rehearsal tracks and their 1994 demo "Samlerans kammer" as bonus tracks.
A very fast and raw sound starts off the album along with a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams while the riffs also add in a great amount of melody as well as all of the musical instruments on the recording also having a very powerful sound to them.
Element s of black'n'roll can also be heard in the mid tempo sections of the songs while all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them. Throughout the album you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with one song also adding in a brief use of female vocals.
Keyboards and stringed instruments can also be heard on a couple of songs along with the rehearsal tracks also bringing in even more of a raw style than the album as well as the 1994 demo songs also bringing in more of an atmospheric yet raw Norwegian black metal style. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Norwegian and cover Dark Folklore themes.
In my opinion this was another great sounding recording from Tulus and if you are a fan of Norwegian black metal, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUD E "Samlerans Kammer" "Kaldt" "Grav" and "De dødes attest". 8 out of 10. - OccultBlackMetalZine
