Unruh are a band from Arizona that plays a mixture of grind, crust, hardcore and power violence and this is a review of the first album in a 3 part LP box compilation with the first album being entitled "Misery Strengthened Faith" which was released by King Of The Monsters.
A very fast, raw and brutal sound starts off the album along with a great amount of blast beats and high pitched screams and they also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the faster sections bring in a great mixture of both crust and grindcore elements and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Melodies can be heard in certain sections of the recording and some of the tracks also bring in a great amount of reverb and distortion while the mid paced sections bring in a heavy influence of both hardcore and power violence and as the album progresses a small amount of clean playing can be heard in some songs and towards the end a brief use of spoken word parts are added onto one of the tracks.
Unruh plays a style of crust/grindcore that is very raw and heavy while also having a decent amount of power violence and hardcore elements in their sound as well as bringing in a small amount of melody at times which makes their music stand out, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover dark and hateful themes.
In my opinion Unruh are a very great sounding mixture of grindcore, crust, power violence and hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Compost" "Jab Job" "Numbered Days" and "Ugly Outside". 8 out of 10.
