Tyrannus are a band from Scotland that has had music reviewed before in this zine and on this recording plays a mixture of black, death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2022 album "Unslayable" which will be released in April by True Cult Records.
Clean playing starts off the album before going into a heavier direction while all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams while the songs also add in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. Tremolo picking can be heard in some of the faster riffing along with the riffs also adding in a great amount of thrash and speed metal elements and the guitar leads are also done in a very melodic yet chaotic style.
Melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing along with a lot of the music also being very heavily influenced by death metal as well as one song also introducing synths onto the recording, as the album progresses clean playing also makes a return and the two closing songs are also long and epic in length, clear vocals are also added on the closing track. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are a concept album based upon Existentialism, Lovecraftian Horror and Anti Fascism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Tyrannus and if you are a f an of black, death, thrash and speed metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Worse Reality" "Unslayable" and "Break the Will of Evil". 8 out of 10.
