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.
