𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: A combination of razor-sharp-extreme-fule driven duel melodic/rhythm sections, outburst (impressive) solos, with intense passages of slow breakdowns

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: An interweave of screams, yelling & growls with a tint of shrieks and Indus spoken words

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Fast dominant drum pattern and beats

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Once hitting that play button, get yourself ready for some dark, angry, philosophical and downright nihilistic music!


Anthrobscenes opens up with their open-title track "Prelude" giving the listener a heart-pumping (fifteen-seconds) of alarming/warning -Esque (distorted-electro) terminator / futuristic factory production line feeling/vibe, then the end of this factory line is one dark-pulsing & adrenaline terminator/cyborg, that gives the listener a combination of not just groove metal groovy-rhythms/drum beats, metalcore breakdowns, but adds this extra extreme hardware of creating something new, dark-mighty mean-machine of -Esque sounds/music of melodic death metal melodies, industrial/electronic metal vibe, that is all woven with impressive fuel-pumping-heavy drumming & riffing/solos, set of vocal pipes that mix different tones & singing styles from every angle of extreme metal while adding a spark of energetic, vibrant, powerful music & sound with a filling of impressive (tight, smart, strong) craftmanship/musicianship, dark (definite meaning) lyrical themes on abusive leaders (death, destruction, disease, racism etc.)

Thoroughly enjoyed Diefied's music, sound, that bands playing style, while breaking all barriers with their new release, if you want something new and unique, while keeping it dark, extreme & brutal with an innovative sonic landscape, this monster is undoubtedly for you

*dark full of energy* *new & fresh*

*entertaining* *brutal* *outstanding*



𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: The artwork is impressive, dark & cold, something out of a futuristic/sci-fi movie

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑: 𝕺𝖚𝖙𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖉𝖎𝖓𝖌: The vocal work and the artwork, then the rest of the EP, overall, just excellent release
