This is a review of a split ep between Massachusetts's Human Bodies and New Hampshire's Leather Chalice which will be released on September 22nd by Broken Limbs and we will start off the review with Human Bodies a band that has been featured and plays a raw mixture of black metal and punk.
Their side of the split starts out with reverb and a powerful sounding bass guitar before adding in a blackened crust punk direction and high pitched black metal screams and you can also hear melodies or d beats in the bands musical style and the faster sections utilize a lot of raw aggression and blast beats and when solos and leads are utilized they remain true to an 80's style of metal punk and both of the songs bring in a great mixture of mid paced and fast parts, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover hateful themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Human Bodies and if you are a fan of punk influenced black metal, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Malice Prepense".
Next up is Leather Chalice a band that plays a raw mixture of black metal and post punk.
Their side of the split starts out with black metal screams and melodic post punk solos and leads and the riffs have a great amount of rawness to them and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the songs alternate between mid paced and fast parts, the production sounds very raw while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding from Leather Chalice are a very great sounding mixture of raw black metal and post punk, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Last Gifts Of Worship".
In my opinion this is a very great sounding split and if you are a fan of black metal and punk, you should check out this ep. 8 out of 10.
