Seething underneath the undulating darkness that is black metal are touches of death metal throughout Loputon Suo’s new offering Portti uuteen. Through four tracks you are greeted with sinister tones, darkened atmospheres and a pure blistering listen that is sure to creep your mind back in to the darkest of recesses. After the ominous and atmospheric intro Polku, Loputon Suo set you off properly through darkened corridors with Ääni Jään Alta, a proper rampaging opener that sets you up for the sonic torment that is to come. Ääni Jään Alta much like the two tracks that follow it is a wonderful mix of black and death metal, providing you with a proper atmospheric quality as well as a pure neck twisting sound.
The four tracks that are harbored within Portii uuteen are dark and sinister. They forever twist and tighten their grip around your neck, seeping their venom into your mind as you listen over and over again. Within this release, Loputon Suo find the right balance through four tracks with their assault of blackened death metal. They combine both genres together well to create an overall unholy and flesh searing sound that is hard to forget.
As one track fades in to the never ending darkness of the abyss, another begins to rain its malevolent intent down upon you. Through and through, Loputon Suo has created something here that is wholly devilish and poisonous. Each track is a memorable offering that provides you with undulating bass lines, forever charging drums, scythe like riffs and vocals that occasionally transition between unearthly growls and banshee like screeches. The three full tracks that follow the intro Polku are malevolent as they gift you with bleak atmospheres and completely ripping blackened metal.
Portti uuteen impresses with only four tracks as it is a cohesive and well put together effort that fully displays what Loputon Suo is capable of. This is a very solid release overall that is sure to please the ears of many.
