With an interesting mixture of black and folk metal, Noituma has a very characteristic style, grounded in cyclic, and sometimes thoroughly irreverent harmonies, profoundly efficient and almost inherently sarcastic. Nonetheless, their sound is fulfilled by a cohesive synergy, that not only perfectly combines these two genres, but works on their innermost qualities in such peculiar techniques, that they managed to create a pervasively singular style of their own.
With more spiritually-orientated and melodic folk stylish pieces, each and every track on Ruoto has its own distinct sonorous identity. With every song sculpted in an almost indulgent state of intuitive sensibility, there is a fascinating degree of beauty delicately inserted in each and every song, with a peculiarly standardized degree of universal infinity colliding directly in the interior anatomy of the soul’s music, to such a degree that you can almost feel the everlasting and inherent strength of Noituma’s impeccable sense of artistry revitalizing all the relativities hidden inside the colorful mountains of your ordinary existence.
The music of Noituma is the essential description of a fearless and definitive journey of the strongest musical aphorism ever to take place in the history of folk metal music. With Ruoto certainly being one of the most marvelous albums that I’ve heard on the genre, their potential goes beyond any possible description. With a vigorous inclination towards a captivating and salutary sense of originality, this is a band with enough qualities to redefine all the principles that solidified the strength of the genre, converting it into something stronger and fundamentally human.
