Ciemra - The Tread of Darkness - Reviewed By occultblackmetalzine ! Check it out here at this link:

  Ciemra  are  a  band from  Belarus  that  plays  a  very  aggressive  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2023  album  "The  Tread  Of  Darkness"  which  was  released  by  Avantgarde  Music.

  Acoustic  guitars  start  off  the  album  before  going  into  a  heavier  musical  direction  while  the  vocals  are  mostly  high  pitched  black  metal  screams.  Melodies  are  also  added  into  some  of  the  guitar  riffing  along  with  the  solos  and  leads  also  being  done  in  a  very  melodic  style  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  on  the  recording  also  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them.

  When  the  music  speeds  up  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  can be  heard  which  also  gives  the  songs  more  of  a  raw  feeling.  Throughout  the  recording  you  can  also  hear  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  along  with  a  couple  of  tracks  also  adding  in  a  small  amount  of  clear  vocals.

  The  songs  also  add  in  a  decent  mixture  of  both  old  school  and  modern  influences  along  with  a  couple  of  tracks  also  adding  in  a  brief  use  of  dark  soundscapes  and  spoken  word  parts,  whispers  and  clean  playing  can  also  be  heard  briefly.  The  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  the  denial  of  the  usual  foundations  of  the  world,  the  darkest  manifestations  of  human  activity  and  the  energies  hidden  beyond  the  dark  abyss.  

  In  my  opinion  Cierma  are  a  very  great  sounding  modern  and  aggressive  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Ciemra"  "Call  of  The  Ancestors"  "Winter"  and  "When  Eyes  Close".  8  out  of  10. occultblackmetalzine

Short Bio: Ciemra, Belarusian for “Darkness”, is a Black Metal band from Minsk which came to life in 2019, when five essences emerged from the Abyss to the veils of night on the eve of the end times, in order to reap the living, to satisfy the hunger of Darkness and to nourish the wombs of the Dark Gods.   

The Tread Of Darkness is based on the denial of the usual foundations of the world, on the darkest manifestations of human activity, and on energies hidden beyond the Dark Abyss. The nine songs of the album make no mystery of their anti-religiousness, which Ciemra turn into pure black matter.   

Nature, in its primordial beauty and originality, also finds a place in The Thread Of Darkness, as there is where Ciemra find themselves at peace.   

The Belarusian quintet delivers a fast-paced, cold and pure black metal which is looking at both the classic European sound and its more contemporary interpretations. You will find loads of riffs, as well as the odd solo and melodic hook, which will relentlessly drag you toward the Darkness.
