True Love are a band from North America that plays a very raw form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 demo "25 Years Of Isolation".
Rain and thunder sounds start off the demo along with some spoken word and laughter samples which also have a demonic atmosphere to them at times as well as being used later on during the recording on some songs before going into a very fast and raw direction which also shows a great amount of blast beats and grim yet high pitched screams and a good portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
You can hear a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts throughout the recording along with some melodies that gives the music more of a modern and American black metal feeling while the whispers when they are utilized gives the music more of an evil atmosphere and they also do a cover of Darkthrone's "Quintessence" before closing the demo with one of their original tracks.
True Love plays a style of black metal that is very raw and heavy sounding and also brings in a good mixture of both second and third wave influences to create their own style, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover dark, violent and hateful themes.
In my opinion True Love are a very great sounding raw black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Final Drought" and "Evasion". 8 out of 10.
