Cease To Exist are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a mixture of raw and primitive sounding black metal and crustcore and this is a review of their self released 2010 demo.
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 strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow mid paced to fast riffs that combine raw and primitive sounding black metal with crustcore to create a sound of their own along with a brief use of clean playing and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are mostly crustcore style shouts with some black metal screams being utilized at times, while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it while you can s till hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Cease To Exist are a very great sounding hybrid of raw and primitive sounding black metal and crustcore and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Disease". RECOMMENDED BUY.
