Thanatomania are a band from Germany that plays a very raw and misanthropic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Resignation" which was released as a joint effort between Schattenkult and Narbentage Produktionen.
Clean playing and acoustic guitars start off the album before going into more of a heavier and melodic musical direction along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them while the vocals are mostly grim black metal screams and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
When tremolo picking is utilized it gives the songs more of a raw feeling while the music also brings in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and as the album progresses clean playing also makes a return in certain sections of the recording and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Thanatomania plays a style of black metal that is very raw and misanthropic sounding along with a depressive touch, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover misanthropy and despair themes.
In my opinion Thanatomania are a very great sounding raw and misanthropic black metal b and and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "II" and "V". 8 out of 10.
