Harassor are a band from Los Angeles, California that plays a mixture of black metal, punk and crust and this is a review of their 2012 album "Hater Of Man" which was released by Husk Productions.
"Glacial Witchery" begins with some distorted sound effects before the melodic and primitive guitar and bass riffs along with some drums kick in and then the music goes into a heavier direction and after awhile the grim black metal screams start kicking in.
"B.T.A" begins with some heavy old school sounding guitar riffs, drums and grim black metal vocals and the song riffing from slow and mid paced parts along with some elements of black'n'roll.
'Killed By Inanity" begins with heavy guitar and bass riffs which are heavily punk influenced along with some drums and then the grim black metal screams start kicking in and then the music speeds up and adds in some primitive elements along with a brief use of blast beats.
"Ripping Hammer" begins with some blackened crust guitar and riffs along with some drums and grim screams and starts slowing down after a few seconds before speeding up again and closing the song.
"Rebellion" begins with some drums and bass guitar riffs and a few seconds later heavy guitar riffs start kicking in along with some high pitched black metal screams and the song for the most part uses the same guitar riff until the end.
"Path Of Self Cannibalization" begins with some primitive black metal/crust punk guitar and bass riffs along with some drums and high pitched screams and after awhile you can hear some blast beats being utilized and towards the end their is a brief use of deep demonic growls being utilized.
"Ildjarn Is Dead" begins with some primitive guitar and bass riffs along with some black metal screams and then the drums kick in along with a brief use of blast beats being utilized but mostly sticking to mid paced elements.
"The End Of Your World" begins with some slow and heavy guitar riffs that utilize some drone and doom metal elements and after a couple of minutes grim sounding black metal screams make their presence known in this song and halfway through the song there are some deep demonic growls being utilized.
Song lyrics cover hatred for humanity themes, while the production has a very dark, raw and primitive sound while you can still hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording with the last song being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Harassor are a very great sounding hybrid of black metal, punk and crust and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Glacial Witchery" "Ripping Hammer" and "Ildjarn Is Dead". RECOMMENDED BUY.
