Unfold are a band from Switzerland that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of sludge, doom metal and post hardcore and this is a review of their 2017 album "Banshee Of A Beast" which will be released in October by Division Records.
Angry sludge style screams along with some heavy post metal style riffing starts off the album along with a great amount of hardcore elements while the riffs also bring in a great amount of melody as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and spoken word parts are also used at times.
Atmospheric synths can also be heard briefly while the slow riffs bring in the heaviness of doom metal along with the riffs also bringing in a great amount of melody and when the music speeds up a small amount of blast beats can be heard, one of the tracks is all instrumental and most of the music sticks to either a slow or mid paced direction.
Unfold creates another recording that remains true to the sludge, doom metal and post hardcore mixture of previous releases, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Unfold and if you are a fan of sludge, doom metal and post hardcore, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "honor The Traitors" "Hex Heyday" "Night Ride, Death Touch" and "Havoc Assemble". 8 out of 10.
