2008 has been a significant year for metal yet many of the finer releases tend to get overshadowed by the larger names. Unearthly Trance's "Electrocution" is one particulary fine example. Electrocution displays a rip roaring concoction of furious hardcore punk energy, sludge metal, a thundering old-school doom metal atmosphere, and even black metal at it's most intense moments. In a year where Doom metal has been practically been at the gutter finds Unearthly Trance producing one of the better records around. Fans of dark, dreary doom with heavy distortion, The Melvins, Pentagram, Goatwhore, or ehavy music need to spin this. If you don't like it, it's your loss.
