With Burning Contempt/Red Visions/2013 CD Review


 With  Burning  Contempt  are  a  band  from  Virginia  that  plays  a  mixture  of  black,  death,  and  thrash  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  self  released  2013  ep  "Red  Visions".

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  not  much  in  the  way  of  blast  beats,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  are  coming  out of  the  guitars.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  riffs  that  combine  black  metal,  death  and  thrash  together  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own  with  some  doom  elements  being  thrown  into  the  riffing  and  there  are  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  present  on  the  recording.

  Vocals  are  all  grim  sounding  and  high pitched  black/thrash  metal  screams,  while  the  lyrics  cover  violent  and  everyday  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  strong,  powerful,  and  heavy  sound  for  being  a  self  released  recording.

  In  my  opinion  With  Burning  Contempt  are  a  very  great  sounding  hybrid  of  black,  death  and  thrash  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Red  Visions"  and  "We  Are  Nothing".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
