MARTRIDEN
THE UNSETTLING DARK
CANDLELIGHT

Technically proficient blackened death metal with modern elements best describes THE UNSETTLING DARK, the 10-track offering by metal marauders Martriden. This powerful Montana-based troupe somehow blended Killswitch Engage, Opeth, Dark Tranquility, and Death to make a stirring concoction that sounds familiar at times yet refreshingly unique throughout. Carving out a place where pummeling double bass, shimmering acoustic guitars, and feral vocal shrieks link arms to join the aural onslaught, forming an impenetrable metallic chain strengthened by this band's lethal combination of grandiose musicianship and savage brutality.
