Apostasy are a band from Chile that plays a blackened mixture of thrash and speed metal and this is a review of their 20220 ep "The Unknown Path" which was re-issued in 2022 by Sentient Ruin Laboratories.
A very heavy and aggressive 80's influenced sound starts off the ep while also bringing in elements of thrash and speed metal. Blast beats and tremolo picking can be heard in the faster sections of the songs while all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them.
Vocals are mostly black metal screams while the music also adds in influences from the first wave era of the genre. Spoken word parts can also be heard briefly along with some synths in the background briefly as well as the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts, when guitar solos and leads are utilized they also remain very true to an old school extreme metal direction and melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing.
Apostasy plays a musical style that takes the 80's era of black, thrash and speed metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover occultism and esoteric themes.
In my opinion Apostasy are a very great sounding blackened mixture of thrash and speed metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "The Shinign Light". 8 out of 10.
