Ride for Revenge - Thy Horrendous Yearning

Ride For Revenge
Thy Horrendous Yearning
2016 Bestial Burst
Ultra-heavy Ride For Revenge are one band that will always keep you guessing.  You never know if a particular track is going to be in their version of black metal, or if it will end up as a noise collage.  It's almost as if they're defying you to listen to them.  If you choose to do so, you can expect to be punished in the most brutal way.  They have a tendency to keep things simple, in that they focus on repetitive riffs designed to hypnotize you.  Just check out the fourteen minute "Soul Abortion" if you need further convincing.  Just when you think you have them figured out, Ride For Revenge will always change the rules.  "Devil's Star on the Rise" focuses on one of the more dirty sounding riffs I've heard in a while, coming across as something closer to what a stoner rock band might play.  But then they'll cut into the title track, which is orthodox black metal in a vein similar to Darkthrone's "Under a Funeral Moon." Got your bearings yet?  Well too bad, because that's followed up with "The Reversed Cross," which has one hell of an early Godflesh vibe to it.  At times, RFR might come across as the demented cousin that you knew Archgoat and Beherit always had, while at the same time having the same "fuck you, we'll play what we want, how we want, when we want" attitude that Profanatica have.  This, like their other albums, is a chapter in their own musical (or maybe anti-musical) universe, where they're free to do as they please.  A challenging band for sure, and they're not for everyone, but I daresay there's no one else like them.
