Italy's Extirpation have returned with a new recording which shows the music going for more of a blackened thrash metal style and this is a review of their 2022 ep "The Endless Storm" which will b e released in November by Chaos Records.
A war orientated sounding intro starts off the ep along with a brief use of acoustic guitars before going into a faster direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style and the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams.
All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them while t he riffs also add in a lot of melody. Elements of thrash metal are also utilized quite a bit throughout the recording along with the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well a s the music also adding in a good mixture of both old school and modern influences and all of the music also sticks to a heavier direction.
On this recording Extirpation update their blackened style of thrash metal for the modern era. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover madness, hate. paranoia and world decay themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Extirpation and if you are a f an of blackened thrash metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Endless Storm" and "Mislaid In Total Nothingness". 8 out of 10.
