Formed in 2001, Halifax, Nova Scotia's Thy Flesh Consumed are already at their fourth full-length album. Long story short: This is like hitting a wall of sound. Not much breathing room on this near 42 minutes album – it's heavy, fast and busy, with very little "down time."
The drums pretty much blast away from beginning to end, which becomes a bit repetitive, if not boring at times, though there are of course more intricate parts where the drummer gets more creative if you will. The growls differ a little bit, with some parts sounding deeper and more guttural, and other a bit more "screechy" (while still remaining growls, of course.) The latter are somewhat decipherable, and the combination of both styles helps bring in some variety. On the guitars side, things can also get a little repetitive, but this makes the solos and more distinctive riffs even more obvious, so as bizarre as this may sound, the end result is pretty cool – even though the production is a bit lacking and sometimes it's hard to tell things apart. This stuff is not unlike what you'd hear from some of the U.S. Death Metal bands – Immolation et al., so if you like that type of unrelenting assault on your aural senses, then Unrepentant may just be up your alley.
