This is blistering, raw and nasty but still boasts a powerful sound.
This style of Black Metal that incorporates the visceral, harsh nature of Crust and Hardcore is a particular favourite of mine of late. Unsacred join the ranks of top bands like Hexis, Ancst, Vermin Womb, Protestant, Flesh Born, etc. who all play the style with power and presence.
False Light boasts songs that have a very direct impact with quality riffs that are halfway between the scything, frozen Black Metal style and a more direct and energetic Hardcore one. Combined like this they mix the best of both worlds and the tracks on this album come across as pure class.
The singer has a very satisfying rasp, somewhat akin to a higher, sharper version of the At The Gates singer in some ways. His voice suits the acerbic nature of the music and is another feather in the cap of Unsacred.
The dark energies flow freely through Unsacred. The suffering and pain they inflict is exquisite.
At only 22 minutes in length False Light is over far too soon. I can easily listen to this over and over again, and I suggest that you do too.
Great stuff. Now bring me more.
