Sunlight's Bane are a band from Michigan that plays a raw mixture of black metal and grindcore and this is a review of their album "The Blackest Volume: Like All The Earth Was Buried" which will be released in 2017 by Innerstrength Records.
High pitched black metal screams start off the album before going into a very fast and raw musical direction t hat also uses a great amount of blast beats and crust style growls are used at times and you can also hear elements of grindcore in the faster sections of the songs along with elements of hardcore in the mid tempo parts.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the fast riffs also use a great amount of tremolo picking and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts and at times the riffs can get very melodic.
You can also hear a great amount of melody in the guitar leads when they are utilized and a later song also brings in a brief use of clean guitars and a few of the tracks are very long and epic in length and melodic vocals can also be heard for a few seconds and they also have a touch of modern metal/rock to them.
Sunlight's Bane plays a musical style that takes raw and melodic black metal and mixes it with grindcore and hardcore to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and angry themes.
In my opinion Sunlight's Bane are a very great sounding mixture of black metal and grindcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Begrudging Soul" "I Am The Cold Harsh Whispers In Hell" "No More Taste Better" and "To Whom I Await". 8 out of 10.
