Expulser where a band from Brazil t hat has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays an early mixture of black, war and death metal and this is a review of their 1993 album "The unholy One" which will be re-issued in April by Greyhaze Records.
A very heavy and raw sound starts off the album along with a great amount of brutal sounding blast beats a few seconds later while the riffs also use a great amount of tremolo picking as well as the vocals being a mixture of death metal growls which also mix in a very blackened death at times.
Throughout the recording you can also h ear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while some of the riffing also adds in a touch of thrash along with a small amount of melody and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very raw yet chaotic fashion as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and as the album progresses demonic voices and high pitched black metal screams can also be heard in certain sections of the recording, when keyboards are utilized they bring in the atmosphere of a horror film.
On this recording Expulser remained true to their early mixture of black, war and death metal while also mixing in more thrash elements this time around, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover Darkness, Evil, Satanism, Alcohol and Anti Christian themes.
In my opinion this was another great sounding recording from Expulser and if you are a fan of black, war, death and thrash metal, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Praise To The Almighty God" "The Unholy One" "The Evil Orgasm" and "No Ressurrection". 8 out of 10.
