Verwesung are a solo project from Germany that plays a very raw, lo-fi and noisy form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 demo "Crushing Thy Existence !!" which was released by Pahahenki Productions.
Angry spoken word samples start off the demo along with some violence before adding in a raw raw yet powerful bass guitar which is also used as a lead instrument and high pitched black metal screams while a later track shows the vocals going into a grim spoken style as well as some blast beats from the drums.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the music also brings in a great amount of 90's influences while the bass riffing is all open note riffing along with some tremolo picking and some of the distortion almost has a harsh noise feeling and the demo also remains very heavy and raw from beginning to ending of the recording and the bonus tracks are very harsh sounding instrumentals with a great amount of static.
Verwesung plays a style of black metal that is very raw and lo-fi sounding while also being very harsh at times, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in German and cover hatred, death, depression and vampirism themes.
In my opinion Verwesung are a very great sounding raw, lo-fi and noisy black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Blutbad Im Schatten Des Petersdom" and "Verrottetes Daesin'. 8 out of 10.
