Harassor/Night On My Side: The Bruno Sessions/ Universal Consciousness/2012 Full Length Review


  This  is  a review  of another  recording from  Harassor  which  continues  their  hybrid sound  of  black metal, crust  and  punk  with  the  album  being called  "Night  On  My  Side:  The  Bruno Sessions"  which  was released  in 2012  by  Universal  Consciousness.

  "Night  On My Side" begins with  some  crust/black metal  style  guitar  riffs and  drums  and  a  high  seconds  later  the high  pitched screams  start  kicking  in  and  after  awhile  the  music  goes  more  into  a  mid  paced  direction.

  "M.D.P" begins  with  some old  school  sounding  black  metal  guitar  riffs  and  drums  and  then  the  grim  sounding  screams  start making  their  presence  known  along  with  some  powerful  bass  guitars  before  adding in some primitive  elements.

  "In  Death"  begins  with  some  fast  and  primitive  sounding  black  metal  guitar  riffs,  blast  beats from  drums and  high  pitched  screams  with  the  song  being  under  a  minute.

  "B.T.A"  begins  with  some  thrash influenced  guitar  riffs,  drums  and  high  pitched  screams  and  a  minute  alter  the  music  gets  more  fast  and  primitive  sounding  along  with  some  blast  beats  before  returning  to  its  opening  riff.

  "Overcoming  Anatomy"  begins  with  some  heavy  guitar  riffs  and  drums  along  with  some  grim  sounding  high  pitched  screams  and  the  song  stays  in  an  old  school  sounding  mid  paced  direction  till  the  end.

  "Ildjarn  Is  Dead"  begins  with  some  primitive  sounding  black  metal  guitar  riff,  drums  and  high  pitched  screams  before  going  into   a  faster  direction for  a  few  seconds  and  adding  in  a  brief  use  of  blast  beats.

  "Increased Decay" begins  with  some  old  school and  melodic  sounding  guitar  riffs  before  getting  a  lot  heavier  along  with  some  drums  and  black  metal  screams  which  leads  to  the  song  going  into  a  more  fast  and  primitive  direction  as  well  as  adding  in  melody  in  certain  sections  of  the  guitar  riffing  and  also  putting in  small  amounts  of  blast  beats,  as  time  goes  on  by  the  music  goes  into  a  slower  direction.

  "Devoured By  Time" begins  with  some  heavy guitar riffs  and  drums  which  leads  to  the  music  going  into  an  old  school  metal  direction  along  with  some  grim  sounding  screams  and  the  song  is  all  mid  paced.

  "Frozen  Soil" begins  with  some  primitive  guitar  riffs  and  drums  before going  into  a  more  fast and  primitive  direction  along  with  some blast  beats  and  black  metal  screams  and  towards  the  end  mid  paced  elements  are  added  into  the  song.

  "Path  Of Self-Cannibalization"  begins  with  grim  sounding black  metal  screams  and  fast,  raw  and  primitive  guitar  riffs  along  with  some  drums  and  you  can  also  hear  some  crust  and  grin  elements  in  certain  parts  of  the  song  and  towards  the  end  there  are  some  blast  beats  and  deep  growls  being  utilized.  

  "Rebellion"  begins  with  some  melodic  guitar  and  bass  riffs  along  with  some  drums  and  a  few seconds  alter  grim  sounding  screams  start  making  their  presence  before  before  going  into    a  more  heavy  and  primitive  direction.

  "The  Harassor"  begins  with  some  crust  punk  style  guitar  riffs  and  then  the  drums  and  grindcore  growls  start  kicking  in  along  with  some  primitive  bass  guitars  and  black  metal  screams  and  the  song  is  only  a  minute.

  "Untitled"  begins  with  some  drone  sounds  and  after  awhile  the  music  gets a lot  heavier  along  with  some  drums  and  grim  black  metal  screams  and  after  awhile  there is  a  brief  use  of  blast  beats  being  utilized.

  Song  lyrics  cover  hatred  for  humanity  themes,  while  the  production  has  a  very  dark, r aw  and  primitive  sound  to  it.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Harassor  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  black  metal  mixed  with  punk  and  crust,  you  should  check out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Night  On My Side"  "Frozen  Soil" and  "The  Harassor".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
