Unyielding Love is anything but loving at all. If anything their main goal is to decimate you and anything it its path and split your head open like a fucking grapefruit. Unyielding Love combines black metal, grind and noise to create something incredibly chaotic, and even though the record is chaotic you just can’t pull yourself away. With everything that these sadistic minds put together they make it all work and what you get is a debut album titled The Sweat of Augury. In just eight songs you get your face peeled back, your ears burst and your head ends up looking like it went through a wood chipper.
The definition of the word augury is “a sign of what will happen in the future; an omen” or “the work of an augur, the interpretation of omens”. The sign of what is to come well before you think about pressing play is pure destruction and that is just inescapable. As soon as you finger lifts off of the play button you are in for more than just a ride. You are in for sonic torture at its finest and you will find your skull and the contents that lie within shredded. The Sweat of Augury is pure chaos and in no time at all you lose your life and your city is flattened beyond belief.
As soon as you begin listening a flood of noise comes barreling out of your speakers to slash your ear drums and your throat all at the same time. Unyielding Love is aggressive and unapologetically so as they attack you from every angle including some angles that you didn’t even know existed. The Sweat of Augury is just pure madness in every form and Unyielding Love never lets you forget it as each song is just as powerful, explosive and potent as the one that came before it.
All throughout this release you get barbaric and cannibalistic riffs coupled with downhill and tumultuous drumming only to be bombarded with screeching and throat straining vocals. The only real “break” that you get from the savage style of play from these heathens is when the fourth track plays, and even then that track is only leading you right back into carnage. The Sweat of Augury is undeniably relentless and heavy as it twists, contorts and strikes without any warning.
Everything about this release is poisonous and detrimental to your health. The Sweat of Augury is a maelstrom of metal that just doesn’t quit until all life has ceased. This is a brain mashing debut album and as chaotic and sordid as it is you just can’t rattle it out of your head. This is savagely dark and twisting and this debut hits on every cylinder and then some as it brings you blood curdling, skin searing and brain melting metal, and really what more could you ask for?
