The Third Eye Rapists are a duo from Sweden that plays a raw mixture of black, death and death metal and this is a review of their compilation album which consists of their 2017 demo and ep which will be released as a single album in May by Amor Fati Productions.
Horror movie style synths start off the compilation before going into a heavier thrash metal influenced direction. When the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling while the vocals are a mixture of black metal screams and death metal growls.
A small amount of melody can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing while all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them. The songs also take both the first and second wave styles and mix them with a more modern and chaotic style along with the guitar leads being done in a very dark style when they are utilized.
Most of the music sticks to a faster direction with only a small amount of mid tempo sections and the horror style synths also return on the closing track which is also an instrumental. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover occultism, death, holocaust and decadence themes.
In my opinion The Third Eye Rapists are a very great sounding raw and chaotic mixture of black, death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this duo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Endless Funeral Rapture" and "Magicians Of The Holocaust". 8 out of 10.
