Grue are a band from Massachusetts that has been featured before in this zine and on this recording goes into more of an apocalyptic black metal direction and this is a review of their 2019 album "Final Transmission From Tomb-World Earth" which was released by Ah Puch Records.
Spoken word parts start off the album along with some apocalyptic soundscapes in the background before going into a very fast, raw and melodic direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats. Vocals are done in more of an angry and shouting style of black metal while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Some of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the solos and leads also add in a decent amount of melody. One song also introduces synths onto the recording and they also bring in the atmosphere of a horror movie soundtrack and some tacks also brings in a a small amount of clean guitars.
Most of the music is more rooted in a modern style of black metal along with spoken word parts also making a return in certain sections of the recording as the album progresses, a couple of tracks also brings in a brief use of stringed instruments. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover the end of human civilization.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Grue and if you are a fan of apocalyptic black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Degenerate Remains Of A Sorcerous Race" and "The Voices Of Time". 8 out of 10.
