Pure straightforward death metal to the core on this EP. It's an explosion of tremolo picked guitars, blast beating drums, low end throat, and a grim aura that accompanies this release. Everything is mixed in well here. Guitars are on key, vocals unrelenting doom infested, mixed with grim darkness. Black Horizon is everything to look for on a release. Where they come from on here is truly original and memorable. The intensity is the main factor. Only a few tracks that exhibit slower tempos. Not many though.
This EP features a production sound that's quite well done. Everything flows perfectly. No instrument is left out without bad mixing and the album shines in abyssal gates. Not a whole lot of lead guitar playing, just crazy fast picked guitar with a letup in tempos invariably. The band is wholly original sounding here nothing copied from anyone else that plays in death metal. I was quite impressed here. A band that shows pure promise for the future.
It's good that they don't have much lead guitar going on because a lot of death metal bands feature it and it ruins the release due to poor outputs. So they shied away from that and focused mainly on constructing solid metal guitar rhythms. All of the songs deserve praise. Very intriguing set of tracks constructed here. Only 22 minutes, but still worth every moment of this. It's an EP that you can never get sick of that's for damn sure. This one will be on repeat for a while.
The great part of this EP is that the band seemed to contribute all as one here. I can't wait for them to finally release a full-length album if they stay together. I'm sure that they will and more power to them because they are quality death metal. Uncompromising intensity and vigor here. The vocals go along well with the guitar. Everything fits together in unison. Most of the riffs here are tremolo picked guitars with a few chord outputs. Mainly blast beating songs with little let up on intensity.
If you want an album that displays pure talent without a whole lot of technology, Black Horizon hits home. I can't say any more good enough about this release. It's truly a gem of a contribution to the metal community. Everything stays original here like I said and the guitars hit home with amazingly awesome riffs. A definitely great contribution of originality, quality, technicality and interesting bits here that does metal in the right way. Pick this one up ASAP!
