Usurpress are a band from Sweden that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style that mixes Swedish style death metal with d beat and crust punk and this is a review of their 2012 album "Trenches Of The Netherworld" which was released by Selfmadegod Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of brutal sounding blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording, as for the flutes they are only utilized on one song and they bring a folk music feeling to t he music.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine Swedish style death metal with d beat and crust punk with a great amount of dark sounding melodies being thrown into the riffing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding guitar solos and leads that combine death metal and crust punk together.
Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls along with a brief use of clean singing, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Usurpress and if you are a f an of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Black Death On White Wings" "The Colours Of Darkness" "Trenches Of The Netherworld" and "Seduction Through Bloodshed". RECOMMENDED BUY.
