N2MB An album that understates itself by title alone. Existential crises recurrent. The bleak dreariness of urban living, in all its pointless, depressing glory is captured in utmost truth to itself here. This is no less than an audio filmstrip of truly gripping caliber. Favorite track: Outside...Alone.

Ryan Dark, depressing, atmospheric, urban, trippy, cold, troubled, Unique with lots of persnoality. This music is easy to get lost in and difficult to find your way out. The album as a whole is a very emotionally intense listen. Favorite track: City Lights.

Vetrarnótt As I feel the depressive weight of this release all over my mind and spirit, I also feel drawn into the dark electronics and synth work that comes with it and as a (pseudo) relief, I understand the vibe of netra and the song crafting, with nice grooves and moments feeling really natural in its transitions from section to section. It's far from an easy trip, emotionally, but worth it because of the work and feeling involved. Favorite track: La Page.

Shaun Black In my opinion, this is one of the few bands that have been able to recreate the feelings of dispair that Lifelover were so good at transmitting. In the same "genre" without sounding like a copycat version. Check it out.

about

The street lights are colder than usual, how come I am so moved ? I feel the urge to escape, to make everything vanish for a while. netra's Melancolie Urbaine album is one of the most original metal albums to be released in a very long time and something that is truly unique. Many influences have been leading the writing process of netra including extreme metal, trip-hop, rock and blues. This album is an incredibly atmospheric journey to your innermost thoughts and nightmares and transcends the typical depressive black metal soundscapes. Raw guitar work, absolutely stunning ambience, powerful melodies, jazz-esque solos, and an atmosphere which has the capacity to drown you in a world of depressing urban landscapes. Released in a standard jewel case in an edition of 1000, this is one of the best albums of 2010 and is not to be missed for any fans of Shining, Manes, Katatonia, Bohren und der club of gore, or someone who is getting tired of depressive black metal bands going through the motions.
