This is another review of a recording from Unhappy which is in the depressive black metal vein with the album being self released in 2013 and called "Misanthropic Suicidal Journey".
"Intro - Death To Holy, Death to Religions" opens up the album with Islamic style chanting as well some some nature sounds and is only a minute long.
"Dismal Fucking Gray Fucking Sky Fucking" begins with programmed drum beats before adding in guitar riffs, synths and grim black metal screams and you can also hear melody in the guitar riffing and the song is a little bit under 2 minutes.
"Barbarian Suicidal Black Fucking Metal" starts up with heavy guitar riffs, drum beats and bestial black metal growls and the song is very short and sticks to a more mid paced direction and closes with the word 'fuck'.
"Dark Castle" kicks in with drum beats, spoken word parts and fast, raw and primitive black metal guitar riffs and a minute later the music goes into a slower direction along with some deep growls before getting fast again.
"Burn the Fucking Mosque" comes in with drum beats, distorted black metal guitar riffs and grim black metal vocals and the song is very short and for the most part uses the same riff from open to end.
"Forest Of Dead Souls" is introduced with slow black metal guitar riffs that utilize some melody as well as some depressive grim screams that are mixed down low in the mix and there are also some weird sound effects added into the music.
"An Ugly Suicidal Anthem" is brought in with raw and melodic slow riffing along with some programmed drum beats and grim screams and the song uses the same riff throughout the song and is under 3 minutes.
"Fuck The Satan, Fuck The God" makes its way in with raw and distorted sounding black metal guitar riffs and drum beats and you can also hear avant garde sounding synths in certain sections of the song.
'Gun Razor Rope Drug Poison" brings its way in with distorted guitar riff, drum beats and grim black metal screams and the song sticks to a more slow and depressive black metal direction during it's 3 and a half minutes.
"Nocte" finds its way in with soft acoustic guitar playing and you can also hear ambulance sounds towards the end and the song is a short instrumental after 2 minutes.
"Winterburn" which is also the last song on the album begins with distorted ambient noises and programmed drum b eats before adding in vocals and you can also hear synths being utilized in the background.
Song lyrics cover depressive, suicidal and anti religion themes, while the production has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Unhappy and if you are a fan of simplistic, depressive black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE ""Dismal Fucking Gray Fucking Sky Fucking" "Burn the Fucking Mosque" "An Ugly Suicidal Anthem" and "Gun Razor Rope Drug Poison". RECOMMENDED BUY.
