The Furor
Cavalries of the Occult
Company: Independent
Release: 2017
Genre: Black
Reviewer: Greg Watson
Published: 2/15/2017

Blackened Thrash/Death from Down Under
Comments:
Australia's The Furor bring a whirling maelstrom of chaos and grit with "Cavalries of the Occult", a blackened death thrash hybrid that also feels like it has some deathcore/metalcore moments to it. Bone-breaking riffs, harsh gutturals and some really nasty low end make the album pretty damn heavy from start to finish. The songs tend to kind of blur together after a while though & lose their sheen about halfway through, making this one something to throw on when you're looking to fuel your rage somewhere. Decent effort for a debut & hopefully the songwriting will evolve & progress to make things more dynamic and changing on the next release.
