Reshitivist is a solo project that is based in both Siberia and Australia and plays a mixture of depressive black, death metal and grindcore and this is a review of his 2018 album "Commencement By Failure" which was released by Sliptrick Records.
Nature sounds along with some acoustic guitars start off the album before going into a heavier direction which also uses a great amount of dark sounding melodies while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the vocals being mostly high pitched screams.
Death metal growls can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording while the faster sections of the songs bring in a great amount of blast beats and grindcore elements along with the slower sections of the songs bringing in more of a depressive black metal style as well as adding atmospheric synths in some parts of the tracks and one of the songs sis very long and epic in length.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while symphonic elements can also be heard briefly along with most of the tracks sounding different than each other and spoken word parts can also be heard briefly as the album progresses and when tremolo picking is utilized it also gives the music more raw feeling as well as the riffing also getting very technical at times and there is also a brief instrumental before returning back to a heavier direction.
Reshivist plays a musical style that takes elements of the symphonic and depressive sides of black metal and also mixes it with death metal and grindcore as well as some technical riffing to create something very original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover misanthropy, depression, anarchy and transcendence themes.
In my opinion Reshivist are a very great sounding mixture of depressive black, death metal and gindcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Unified And Destroyed" "Disrupt Order" "The Deluge" and "Resign". 8/2 out of 10.
