Unendlich are a solo project from Maryland that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very raw and melodic form of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2021 album "Paradox Of A Broken World" which will be released in July.
A very fast and raw sound starts off the album along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams while the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic style as well as the riffs also adding in a lot of melody and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the music is also very heavily influenced by both the modern and old school styles of the genre. Clean playing and acoustic guitars can also be heard in some parts of the recording as well as some keyboards also being utilized on a few tracks and they also give the music more of an atmospheric feeling.
On this album Unendlich takes the raw, melodic and atmospheric styles of black metal and mix them together a create a very aggressive sounding recording. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover the observation of human hypocrisy and absurdity.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Unendlich and if you are a fan of raw, melodic and atmospheric black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Wisdom Of Suffering" "Inner Kill" "Culmination Of Hate" and "Paradox of A Broken World". 8 out of 10.
