This is a review of a split ep between Ohio's Unrest and Alberta, Canada's Idolatry called "/Infection Born Of Ending" which was released by Appalachian Noise Records and we will start off the review with Unrest a solo project that plays a very raw and hateful form of black metal.
His side of the split starts out with a very distorted guitar sound along with some drum beats a few seconds later before going into more of a raw black metal direction and adding in grim screams that also get very deep at times and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats are utilized while melodies can be heard in both the slow and fast riffs, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Hateful themes.
In my opinion Unrest are a very great sounding raw black metal project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out his side of the split.
Next up is Idolatry a band that plays a very raw, melodic and satanic form of black metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a very dark and melodic sound and a few seconds alter grim black metal screams are added into the music and after awhile the song starts speeding up a bit bringing in more of a raw style and blast beats that also gives the track more of an old school feeling and after awhile elements of DSBM can be heard at times as well as a brief use of spoken word parts, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Satanism and Darkness themes.
In my opinion Idolatry are a very great sounding raw, and melodic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split.
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and if you are a fan of the raw, melodic and satanic styles of black metal, you should add this 7 inch to your collection. 8 out of 10.
