Review: Australasia's first album "Vertebra"

Not a long time ago, arrived at Lachryma Christi's mailbox the first album of Australasia. Australasia are a post instrumental Black Metal band from Italy. Lachryma Christi had the pleasure to listen and review their previous work Sin4tr4 and became a big fan of the band right away. It is with an enormous delight that Vertebra is heard and reviewed as well. It is just great, from the artwork to the music. Released earlier this year through Immortal Frost Productions, the album is as mentioned before, instrumental. There are some female chorus, but don't expect any main singer, because there is none. And don't expect it to be boring either, because it is not. It is absolutely amazing.
Vertebra has 10 tracks, all of them with interesting and short titles, and all the songs manage to match the titles somehow.
It is not just a random post Black Metal album, it has great professionalism, from the compositions to the production. Great musicians, great details and influences along all the album.
It is varied. You can find proper heavy bits with great heavy guitars, you can also find great electronic details, and also acoustic passages.
Vertebra is so entertaining, so easy to get into, so captivating, it is really hard to not like it.
