Geist are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a blackened mixture of crust and hardcore and this is a review of their 2017 ep "Disrepair" which will be released in September by WOAAARGH.
Heavy guitars and powerful sounding bass riffs start off the ep along with some hardcore style screams and the music also mixes in a great amount of crust and d beat elements and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion while the riffs also use a decent amount of melody.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the music also mixes in a decent amount of black metal influences and they keep every in a very heavy musical direction and all of the tracks are short in length with the longest one being 3 and a half minutes.
Geist plays a musical style that mixes black metal, hardcore and crust together to create a sound of t heir own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover violent and hateful themes.
In my opinion Gesit are a very great sounding blackened mixture of crust and hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Painkillers" and "Fiction Souls". 8 out of 10.
