Yes, this is just what the good doctor ordered – a raw, efficient, and utterly memorable new output by the skilled US black metal act known as SYN. These ugly fucks deliver a potent and powerful slab of harsh and grim music that harbors both aggression and finesse not to mention that the vile and unholy atmosphere that they conjure up is so prominent that one can pretty much reach out and touch it. From blistering, sharp, and vicious parts to slow, heavy, and melancholy sections underlined by thick, rumbling bass lines, SYN keep things dynamic and captivating throughout while ensuring that momentum is retained at all times. If you listen closely to the creative drumming, the clever bass lines, and the delightfully cryptic riffs, everything simply gels and complements each other, and there are plenty of subtle details, textures, and deftly composed tunes of suffocating darkness for you to sink your teeth into here. What about highlights and standout moments then? Well, fuck you! Just listen to the whole cursed 7-song offering and revel in its splendor.
