Avulse/We Are All Code/Broken Limb Recordings/2012 CD Review


  Avulse  are  a  1  man  band  from  Maine  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  with  a  musical style  that  combines  raw  and  primitive  sounding  black  metal  with  d  beat  and  punk  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2012  album  "We  Are  All  Code"  which  was  released  by  Broken  Limb  Recordings.

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  blast  beats  being  utilized  at  times,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  are  coming  out  of  the  guitars  and  at  times  they  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  riffs  that  combine  raw  and  primitive  sounding  black  metal  with  d  beat  and  crust  together  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own  with  some  melodic  riffing,  while  the  lead  guitars  are  very  old  school  sounding  punk  rock  guitar  solos  and  leads.

  Vocals  are  mostly  grim  sounding  black  metal  screams  along  with  some  clean  singing  punk  rock  vocals  being  used  on  one  song,  while  the  lyrics  cover  reality  and  everyday  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  to  it  in  the  true  old  school  black  metal  tradition.

  In  my  opinion  this  another  great  recording  from  Avulse  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  punk  influenced  primitive  black  metal,  you  should  check  out this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Flames  Of  Liberty"  "Veteran's  Day"  "Black  Denim"  and  "We  Are  All  Code".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
