Hellsaw's Trist is a fairly standard Black Metal album, but one with enough variety to keep it from falling into the "generic" category. The meat and potatoes of the album includes speedy blast beat drums and tremolo picking alternating with slower, Thrash-based riffing. Vocalist Aries has what I can only describe as hoarse-sounding raspy vocals. I never thought I'd hear that, but there they are. Hellsaw deviate from the formula with tremolo picking that sounds almost like mandolins ("Doom Pervades Nightmares"), Gregorian-style chanting ("Death Bells") and almost Rock riffing ("Silence").
None of the things Hellsaw does is particularly original when taken individually, but when added up they equal more than the sum of the parts. Trist is above average Black Metal and worth a listen.
