Exquisite Ending are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a very raw and misanthropic form of black metal and this is a review of their ep "The Rites Of Misanthropism Psalms I to IV" which will be released by Hibernacula Records.
Atmospheric sounds which also have an ambient feeling to them start off the ep along with some spoken word parts and after a minute the music goes into a very fast and raw black metal direction along with some blast beats and grim screams and after awhile the band starts to bring a good amount of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
At times the riffs bring out a decent amount of melody and you can hear a lot of hate being utilized in the vocals and the spoken word parts also make a return on a couple of the tracks and they also mix some technical parts into a very raw black metal sound at time which also makes their music stand out even more.
Exquisite Ending plays a style of black metal that is very raw and misanthropic capturing a lot of the old school sound while also mixing in some of the more modern technical sound as well as keeping everything in a very true and pure style of black metal, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover misanthropic and occultism themes.
In my opinion Exquisite Ending are a very great sounding raw and misanthropic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ostracism Of Tormenting Morality" and "We Perish As one Vessle". 8 out of 10.
