Uprising are a solo project from Germany that plays a very raw and satanic form of black metal and this is a review of his self titled album which will be released by Tridroid Recordings in 2017.
Atmospheric soundscapes start off the album along with some heavy guitars and spoken word parts a few seconds later and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody and when the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which gives the songs more of a raw feeling.
Vocals are mostly grim black metal screams while the solos and leads are done in a very dark and melodic fashion and throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the music also gets very atmospheric at times and clean playing can also be heard in some of the songs and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and as the album progresses growls can also be heard briefly and a later song also introduces clean singing onto the recording and classical guitars are utilized for a few second on the closing track.
Uprising plays a style of black metal that is very raw, aggressive and melodic and also brings in more of an old school approach which also gets mixed in with a more modern sound, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover Nihilism, Satanism and Revolution themes.
In my opinion Uprising are a very great sounding nihilistic, satanic black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Uprise" "Gather The Dark Spirits" and "Behold the Eternity Of The Stars". 8 out of 10.
