Ripping through a diabolical concoction of caustic D-beat hardcore with doom metal predilections and sludge metal atmosphere, Finland’s Unkind showcase their impressive range of oppressiveness on the eight-track offering HARHAKUVAT. This unit’s North American debut record and fifth overall displays Unkind’s penchant for creating auspicious intros that build a crust metal frenzy before dropping into metalgaze low gear (“Ylpea Perhe”), exhibiting the tenacity to administer a proper hardcore thrashing a la Tragedy and Converge as well as exude the gloomy expansiveness that gravitates towards ethereally heavy realms visited by the likes of Neurosis and Isis. This seasoned squad comprises a harsh and viscous listening experience for fans that enjoy an experimental metal crush.
