Reviewer: Greg Watson
Depressive Black Metal is a genre that has really been picking up steam lately and one man outfit Unreqvited is delivering some really strong DBM material with 'Disquiet'. The concept of the album deals with life and death so you can imagine the range of motions that one will experience while listening to this album. Musically there isn't really anything groundbreaking or incredibly innovative but the emotion that is captured in the tracks is easily felt throughout each composition on the album. That quality alone makes this album worth the listen, just to experience the ride that you will take as you wind your way through seven tracks. Music like this is definitely not for everyone but if you take the time to really listen to the music and let it flow through you, you will be completely enamored with this release and the brilliance of the songwriting.
