Tyhja are a band from Finland that plays a mixture of black metal and crust and this is a review of their self titled and self released 2017 ep.
A very fast and raw sound starts off the ep along with a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking while the vocals are mostly grim black metal screams along with the music also mixing in elements of d beat and crust punk as well as the riffs also bringing in a decent amount of melody.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody at times along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them as well as the music always remaining very dark and heavy and also mixing in elements of grindcore.
Tyhja plays a musical style that takes a very raw and melodic style of black metal and mixes it with crust punk and grindcore to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Finnish and cover hostility towards mankind and society, death and the unavoidable end of everything.
In my opinion Tyhja are a very great sounding mixture of black metal, grindcore and crust punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Nahkansanylkja" and "Kuolema". 8 out of 10.
