Reaper's The Atonality of Flesh is a black/thrash album that blends a bit of creepiness into the dark and evil atmosphere of the music. Spoken word intros and outros bookend the frenetic guitars and unsettling dry and crackly rasps that characterize the bulk of the songs and giving the whole album a frightful storybook vibe. Reaper don't go full throttle all the way through, weaving some almost traditional metal riffs into cuts like "Come Nature, Come Death" and "The Sweetness of the Wound". It reminds me just a little of Desaster in spots. There is a lot of black/thrash music to choose from, much of it generic, but that isn't a label I'd apply to The Atonality of Flesh. It has just enough character and individuality to separate it from the crowd. Reaper is a band for thrash fans looking to explore black metal or black metal fans looking for a bit of thrash.
