Usurpress are a band from Sweden that mixes Swedish style death metal with crust/punk and this is a review of their 2012 album "In Permanent Twilight" which was released by Selfmadegod.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of brutal sounding blast beats being thrown into the the music, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with some crustcore riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine Swedish style death metal with crustcore along with some dark sounding melodies , while the lead guitars are very raw and primitive sounding crust punk guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls with a brief use of clean singing being utilized on one song, while the lyrics cover hateful and everyday themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Usurpress are a very great sounding Swedish death metal/crustcore hybrid and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Unpunished" "The Iniated(Will Fall)" "Primitive Majesty" and "Permanent Twilight". RECOMMENDED BUY.
