Unsilent are a band from Chile that plays a very aggressive and melodic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Obscure & Profane" which was released by Australis Records.
Dark soundscapes and synths start off the album along with a brief use of melodic chants and demonic voices before going into a heavier musical 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.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams that also get very deep sounding at times while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. The riffs also utilize a great amount of melody as well as the guitar solos and leads also being done in a very melodic style when they are utilized.
The songs also add in a decent mixture of both old school and modern influences and as the album progresses a brief use of death metal growls can also be heard as well a later track also adding in a small amount of Islamic chants before returning back to a heavier direction, some of the riffing also shows an influence of thrash metal. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Black Magick, Hell's Legions, Evil, Anti Christianity, Chaos and Death themes.
In my opinion Unsilent are a very great sounding aggressive and melodic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Black Spells Of Death" "Manifesto" "I Am Holocaust" and "Morbid Obsessions". 8 out of 10.
