Unrest are a band from Pennsylvania that plays a very old school and brutal mixture of crust and grind and this is a review of their 2015 album "Grindcore" which will be released in March by Unspeakable Axe Records.
A very distorted reverb sound starts off the album before going into a very fast and grindcore grindcore direction along with some blast beats, crust influences and a good mixture of both growls and screams and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the songs having a great amount of mid 80's to early 90's influences
Most of the tracks are very short in length and there are no guitar solos or leads present on any of the songs while some of the tunes do bring in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as adding in a small amount of melody along with a touch of death metal at times while the main focus remains more on a faster style of grindcore and there is never a soft or weak moment to be heard anywhere on the recording.
Unrest plays a style of grindcore that is very old school, fast and aggressive and also adds in a touch of crust and death metal to create some brutal music, the production sound s very professional while the lyrics cover violent and political themes.
In my opinion Unrest are a very great sounding mixture of crust and grindcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "You Take" "Protest Culture" "Identity in The Internet Age" and "False Brotherhood". 8 out of 10.
