Roel de Haan : Netra returns and delivers us a third album to ponder about. On ‘Ingrats’ we see Netra further developing its niche. And I mean niche in the strictest way possible. Netra specialises in combining black metal with triphop, jazz, industrial, ambient and whatever pops up in the creators mind. Netra does have the capacities to execute this in a way that the songs feels natural. Not just a mere compilation of genres. ‘Ingrats’ feels more developed and direct than its laid-back predecessor ‘Sørbyen’ and therefore more accessible. But at the same time ‘Ingrats’ is Netra’s most violent album, in fact, when Netra goes metal they go metal full on with massive blasts, aggressive and abrasive tremolo picked riffs and bone shattering screeches. The combination of all these different elements and clever song-writing makes ‘Ingrats’ an excellent album for extreme metal fans with a penchant for the avant-garde and bewildering. Good stuff.
