This is a review of a split 7 inch between Michigan's Sunlights Bane and England's Geist which will be released in September by Seeing Red Records and we will start off the review with Sunlights Bane a band that plays a mixture of d beat and grind.
Their side of the split starts out with a very fast and brutal grindcore sound that uses a great amount of blast and d beats along with some death metal growls and angry hardcore style shouting and one of their tracks are very short in length and high pitched screams can also be heard at times and both songs also sticks mostly to a very fast and heavy sound while also bring in a slight black metal influence and some mod paced sections, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Sunlights Bane are a very great sounding mixture of b beat and grindcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Spoke of the Cancerous Void".
Next up is Geist a band that plays a mixture of d beat and grindcore.
Their side of the split starts out with a very fast and aggressive sound along with some power violence/hardcore style shouts and the music also incorporates a great amount of d beat elements while also mixing in the heaviness of grindcore and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover angry themes.
In my opinion Geist are a very great sounding mixture of power violence, d beat and grindcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Location Data".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of d beat, power violence and grindcore. 8 out of 10.
