The Furor are a 1 man band from Australia that plays a very raw and brutal mixture of black, death and war metal and this is a review of his self released 2014 album "Impending Revelation".
A very dark, evil and atmospheric sounding synth starts off the album before going into a more melodic and heavier musical direction which also brings in leads, growls and screams setting up the mood for more of a black/death metal direction and when the blast beats kick in they invoke the sounds of war.
The solos and leads that are utilized on the album are in an old school and chaotic extreme metal direction and there is also a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the music brings back a lot of the early to mid 90's Australian style war metal sound back and at time s you can also hear a great amount of thrash elements in certain sections of the recording.
After awhile the solos, leads and riffs start utilizing more melody and after being very heavy and brutal for a long time on one of the tracks the music calms down for a few seconds before adding even more brutality as well as mixing in a small amount of atmosphere on the next couple of tracks while the rest of the recording remains in a raw, brutal and chaotic musical direction and there is also a cover of Slayer's "Show No Mercy" towards the end of the recording.
The Furor takes the rawest, heaviest and most brutal elements of black, death, war and thrash metal and combines them together to create on of the heaviest sounding recordings to be released so far this year, the production has a very strong, powerful and heavy sound while the lyrics cover darkness and occult themes.
In my opinion The Furor are a very great sounding mixture of black, death and war metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hammer Hierarchy" "Corpse Eclipse" "Black Sorcerer Of Sadism" and "The Pentagram Prevails". 8 out of 10.
