This is a review of a split cassette between U.S.A's Intolerant and Equinox which was released by Vanguard productions in 2014 and we will start off the review with Intolerant and their track "Purify".
Dark and evil sounding synths start off their side of the split before going into a very fast and raw old school black metal direction along with some very deep and grim sounding vocals that have a growling feeling to them and their song also has blast beats, melody and and epic/atmospheric sound to it along with lyrics that cover hatred and sorrow along with a very dark and raw sounding production.
In my opinion this is another great sounding track from Intolerant and if you are a fan of old school, raw and atmospheric black metal, you should check out their side of the split.
Next up is Equinox and their track "Covenwolves".
Spoken word parts which also return later in the song start off their song before going into a very fast and raw direction along with some blast beats and high pitched black metal screams and a small amount of growls as well as some melodic chanting as the song progresses and the music is in the 90's direction along with an old school and raw production as well as lyrics that cover the darker side of witchcraft and paganism.
In my opinion Equinox are a very great sounding raw and old school pagan/black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their song.
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of raw and old school black metal. 8 out of 10.
