This is a review of a split ep between Michigan's Disillusionment and Entrope which was self released in 2013 and we will start of the review with Disillusionment which plays a very progressive form of blackened death metal.
Their side of the split starts off with a very dark and distorted sound and after awhile the music gets more progressive, fast and brutal along with blast beats and a mixture of screams and growls and the band also shows a good mixture of death and black metal influences as well as bringing in a mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the guitar solos and leads have a very technical feeling to them at times and after awhile the music also starts getting more melodic and the second song also sees the band adding a small amount of clean playing into their musical sound.
Disillusionment plays a very brutal, technical and progressive mixture of black and death metal with their music and they also have an original sound to t hem, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover philosophical themes.
In my opinion Disillusionment are a very great sounding progressive blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "The Natural State (First Movement)".
Next up is Entrope a band that plays an instrumental form of metal.
Heavy and melodic guitar riffs start off their side of the split and you can hear some progressive and technical death metal elements in their music along with some atmospheric sounds in the background and after awhile blast beats are added into certain sections of the recording and the guitar solos bring a great amount of melody into the bands musical sound and they also bring in a small amount of clean playing on the last track.
Entrope stays away from vocals and they have a very progressive, technical and melodic approach to metal and they also display a great amount of talent and skill as musicians and the production sounds very professional.
In my opinion Entrope are a very great sounding instrumental band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Understand".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend to all fans of black, death and progressive metal. 8 out of 10.
