On disc: Despite Exile

Re-Evolve - Claudia Ehrhardt - 8 stars


(self-released - 2012)

Italian Despite Exile released in 2011 their debut Scarlet Reverie, now they are back with the 3-track EP Re-Evolve. Again they take the listener onto a sonic journey, complex passages, heavy riffs spiced up with aggressive shouts and growls. Tempi-changes give songs like Oscillate a progressive edge. The opening passage of Perfection Neutralized has a industrial feel to it, but soon the Italian quintet gets away from this and back into their comfort zone - deathcore. All the songs have melodic elements, but focus on aggression and heaviness. At Mechanical the guitars add an atmospheric edge to it, but other parts sound off tune - intentionally off key - and so they create a complex soundscapes.

If you like deathcore and if you aren't afraid of complex sounds, check them out!
