Hatepulse/Core Of The Soulless/Rage Of Achilles/2005 CD Review

  Hatepulse where a band from Norway that has been reviewed before in this zine with a musical style that I would describe as being hateful misanthropic black metal and this is a review of their 2005 album "Core Of The Soulless" which was released by Rage Of Achilles.

Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of brutal sounding 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 sound very powerful, as for the keyboards when they are utilized they are used more as a sound effect instead of a lead instrument.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that are very raw and primitive sounding with an old school Norwegian feeling as well as a punk rock edge while the lead guitars make more of an appearance on this recording and have a distorted feeling to the leads.

Vocals are mostly high pitched hateful black metal screams with some depressive cries and deep growls being thrown in at times as well as a brief use of clean singing as well as some spoken word part samples, while the lyrics cover hateful and negative themes, as for the production it has a very heavy sound without sounding too overproduced.

In my opinion this is another great recording from Hatepulse and you can hear that they progressed alot as musicians on this recording and if you are a fan of misanthropic Norwegian black metal, you should get this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Pur NEGATIV ENERGI" and "A Colder Kind Of DEATH". RECOMMENDED BUY.
