This is a review of the second album in the 3 lp set from Unrah called "Setting Fire To Sinking Ships" which continues their mixture of grindcore, crust, power violence and hardcore and was re-issued in 2015 by King Of The Monsters.
Acoustic guitar playing and keyboards start off the album giving the music a progressive feeling before going into a very brutal crust/grind direction along with a great amount of blast beats and high pitched screams while the music does slow down at times and adds in melody, power violence and post hardcore elements.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to t hem and the band also brings in a small amount of death metal growls at times and some of the songs also add in small amounts of clean playing at times and as the album progresses the influence of hardcore starts to kick in more during the mid paced sections and some of the tracks also bring in a small amount of spoken word parts.
Unruh continue the mixture of grind, crust, power violence and crust on this release while also adding in more melody, structure and longer songs this time around, the production sounds very raw, heavy and powerful while the lyrics cover violent and hateful themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Unruh and if you are a fan of grind, crust, power violence and grind, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Spoonful Of Tar" "Faded Tattoos" and "Five Year Wager". 8 out of 10.
