Cryostasium are a band from Boston, Massachusetts that plays a mixture of black metal, crust, noise and industrial and this is a review of their 2014 album "Stalwart" which was released by Symbol Of Domination Productions.
A very fast, raw, distorted and noisy black metal sound starts off the album along with some blast beats and all of the musical instruments are very powerful sounding and the music is also very avant garde and experimental at times while some of the faster riffs also bring in the raw energy of crust punk.
At times the more noisier sound of industrial can be heard while vocals and songwriting are absent from the recording with all of the music being mostly instrumental except towards the end where angry shouts and screams can be heard and you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts throughout the recording and at times the riffs also bring in a small amount of melody along with a touch of harsh noise.
Cryostasium plays a musical style that takes a very raw form of black metal and mixes it in with crust, noise and experimental to create a style of their own and the production also has a very powerful sound to it.
In my opinion Cryostasium are a very great sounding mixture of raw black metal, crust, noise and experimental and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Salve" "Eclipse" "Gone" and "Inept". 8 out of 10.
