Cursed Sun, ‘The Fall And Rise’ EP review

Seven – A very growly track, with some quite macabre instrumentals.  Liking the tone of the riffs in the mid-section and the lyrics fit well with the dark accompaniments. Whilst ‘growly’ lyrics aren’t usually my scene, these particular ones are actually very accomplished and just flow effortlessly and admirably.

Psychopath – Some more melodic backing vocals in this track.  This song’s got a good rhythm to it, rolling along nicely.  Got to say the softer backing vocals blend well with the aggressive front line ones.  Oh and I’m liking those faster, slightly more upbeat riffs.  Nice mellow closing guitar tone.

The Last Rites – Really powerful drum and vocal intro, seamlessly done.  Impressive and rare ability to just segue right into the song.  Again, some great melodies and you can feel the band cohesion, which is what really stands out on this track.  Certainly no shortage of passion).

Ascension – Oh, lovely guitar intro here!  Speeding up and seguing into some more angry vocals.  This track does contain some sporadic vocal harmonies, between the main ones, which works well.  Some mellower riffs towards the end.

Overall, an explosive, expressive collection of passionate aggression, effortlessly and professionally delivered.  7 out of 10. *******.
