Agvirre – Silence – EP Review

Enjoy the silence!

Silence, the debut EP from UK post-black metal collective Agvirre, manages to convey more wrought emotion over just three tracks than most bands can impart over an entire album and is all the more rewarding, and surprising, when you consider this is their debut release!

Beautifully barbaric, Agvirre have ably amalgamated black metal, shoegaze, post-metal, noise and electronics to deliver an unsettling and, ultimately, discordant expression of living with mental illness. A fever dream made flesh, Agvirre’s tangents into both terror and sublimity are an experience in themselves; an unpredictable ride into otherworldly strings and ferocious black metal which fully absorb and engulf the listener.

Stick on some headphones and absorb this fucker in all of its solemn, confrontational beauty. It’s well worth the challenge. 8/10

About Chris Jennings (1986 Articles)
I love metal. Always have. Always will. As editor of Worship Metal - a site dedicated to being as positive about metal and its myriad of sub-genres as possible - my aim is to 'worship' metal through honest reviews, current news and a wide variety of features; offering the same exposure to underground bands as we do to mainstream/well known acts. Our mantra; the bands are partners and we exist to serve the bands \m/
