Barishi are a band from Vermont that has been featured before in this zine and plays a melodic and progressive mixture of hardcore, black and death metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 ep "Howl".
A very heavy and brutal style of prog metal starts off the album along with some high pitched screams that combine hardcore and black metal together and after awhile the music starts incorporating more melody along with some technical elements and the music also brings in a good mixture of both clean and heavy parts.
Blackened death metal growls can be heard in certain sections of the recording while some of the heavier parts also bring in more of a modern prog metal style along with blast beats being added in some of the faster sections of the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Barishi continue their extreme progressive metal mixture of previous recordings taking the hardcore, prog, technical, melodic black and death metal genres combining them as well creating something very original. the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark, real life and philosophical themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Barishi and if you are a fan of hardcore, prog, melodic black and death metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Smoke From The Earth" and "Snakeboat". 8 out of 10.
