Stenho are a band from Greece that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of black metal, crust and grindcore and this is a review of their 2016 album "Liberty Crawls in Waste" which will be released in September by EveryDayHate Records.
Dark sound effects start off the album along with some distorted noises before going into more of a heavy and brutal direction that also introduces death metal growls and elements of crust and grind onto the recording while the blast beats are done in a very brutal fashion and the riffs can also be melodic at times.
Spoken word parts can be heard in certain sections of the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and high pitched screams can also be heard at times while the riffs also mix in a great mount of black metal elements and most of the tracks are very short in length and all of the musical instruments gave a very powerful sound to them and the whole album also remains very brutal from beginning to ending of the recording and the last track brings in a brief use of movie samples.
Stheno creates another recording that takes black metal and mixes it with grindcore and crust to create a very heavy and brutal album, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover religion, war, society and violence themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Stheno and if you are a fan of black metal, grindcore, and crust, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hail Nothing" "Sounds Of Ruined Temples" "Liberty Crawls in Waste" and "Between man And God". 8 out of 10.
