Avulse/I Am Liquor/Broken Limb Recordings/2011 CD Review


  Avulse  are  a  band  from  New  York  that  plays  a  very  raw  and primitive  form  of   black  metal  with crust  influences  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2011  album  "I  Am  Liquor"  which  was  released  by  Broken  Limb  Recordings.

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  blast  beats  being  utilized,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  are  coming  out  of  the  guitars.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  black  metal  riffs  that  are  very  raw  and primitive  sounding  with  a  good  amount  of  crust  and  punk  influences  being  thrown  into  the  riffing  as  well  as  some  melody,  while  the  lead  guitars  which  are  only  used  briefly  are  very  raw  and  primitive  sounding  black  metal  guitar  solos  and  leads,  as  for  the  acoustic  guitars they  are  only  used  on  one  song  and  they  use  finger  picking  and  full  chords  to  add  more  original  elements  to  the  recording.

  Vocals  are  all  grim  sounding  black  metal  screams  that  do not  get  all  into high  pitched ,  while  the  lyrics  cover  darkness,  everyday  and  alcohol  themes,  as  for  the  production it  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  to  it  with  one  of  the  songs  being  long  and  epic  in  length.

  In  my  opinion  Avulse  are  a  very  great  sounding  raw  and  primitive  black  metal  band  with  crust  and punk  elements  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  recording. RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "I Am  The  Liquor"  "Vacant"  "Naked  In  Flame/Black  Heaven"  and  "Midnight  In  Bayside/These  Streets  Lead  Nowhere".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
