Episode 13/Death Reclaims The Earth/Misantrof ANTI Records/2010 CD Review

  Episode 13 are a band from Turkey that plays a very raw and primitive form of misanthropic anti human black metal and this is a review of their 2010 album "Death Reclaims The Earth" which was released by Misantrof ANTI Records.

Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that are very dark, raw and primitive sounding while still retaining a great amount of skill mixed in with some weird melodies and distorted parts with the songs being very long and epic sounding and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.

Vocals are all grim sounding and high pitched black metal screams mixed in with some mournful sounding cries as well as a brief use of growls, while the lyrics cover misanthropic and hateful themes, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy, raw and primitive sound to it.

In my opinion Episode are a very great sounding anti human misanthropic black metal band that stands out in the genre and does not copy anyone and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Physical Comatose And Mental Overdose" "Ultimate Sterilization" and "Spread His Word". RECOMMENDED BUY.
