Unsacred are a band from Virginia that plays a mixture of raw black metal and crust punk and this is a review of their 2014 album "False Light" which will be released in December by Forcefield Records.
A very distorted sound along with some high pitched black metal screams start off the album before going into a very fast and raw direction along with some brutal blast beats and the energy of crust punk while you can also hear some technical parts in their musical sound along with some melodies and a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
You can hear a lot of modern Scandinavian influences in the bands musical style along with a decent amount of d-beats and all of the songs remain true to a very fast, heavy, raw and brutal direction throughout the recording and there is never a soft or weak moment to be found anywhere in the tracks and as the album progresses the bass guitars bring in more of a powerful sound.
Unsacred plays a very fast and extreme style that combines some of the rawest and most talented black metal with crust punk to create a sound of their own and this is probably one of the heaviest US black metal records to be released in a long time, the production sounds very raw yet brutal and dark at the same time while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Unsacred are a very great sounding raw and brutal mixture of black metal and crust punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "False Light" "Erode" and "Cage". 8/5 out of 10.
