2 stars I am all for variations on an album. But Unmoored is taking the piss here.

This is the second album from Unmoored and a change in direction from their debut album. Gone is the Slipknot and Korn connotations. In comes brutal and sometimes epic blackened death metal. Death metal in the typical downtuned Swedish style. The style Nihilist/Entombed and Dismember pioneered. That is 3/4 of the album. Then we get treated to some folky doom metal and some house music towards the end of this album. Type of music on the opposite end of the spectrum from the death metal this album started with. Is Unmoored playing a joke on us or not ? Disjointing an album like this is not a clever move at all.

The quality of the death metal is good. The quality of the other stuff is pretty bad. Hence, this is not an album I would recommend. The only good thing here is the Dan Seagrave artwork. And that's it.

2 stars
