Unhoped are a band from Finland that plays an aggressive form of thrash with a touch of early death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Sonic Violence" which was released by EBM Records.
A very distorted sound starts off the album before going into a heavier thrash metal direction which also uses melodies at times and a few seconds later aggressive screams and back up gang shouts are added onto the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the solos and leads remain true to an old school thrash metal style and while the music is rooted in the mid 80's the production gives the music more of a modern feeling and one track brings in a brief use of sound effects before making a return back to a heavier musical direction and some of the vocals also add in semi growls..
Unhoped plays a style of thrash that is heavily rooted in the mid 80's and also mixes in a touch of the early death metal style to create a very heavy and aggressive sounding recording, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover violence, death and hatred themes.
In my opinion Unhoped are a very great sounding aggressive thrash metal band with a touch of death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Whle World Gone To Hell" "Sonic Violence" "human Disgrace" and "The Naked And The Dead". 8 out of 10.
