4.0 excellentBrandon Scott EMERITUS | August 8th 16

Musically, Guilt and His Reflection is one of the most interesting things I've heard all year. It defies categorization; Cara Neir is seamlessly avant-garde, metal, screamo, hardcore, and many other things. Wildspeaker is a bit more straightforward, but their blend of black metal/hardcore/post- is equally as compelling. The vocals on both sides are furious and vitriol-filled, with Chris' rasps and shouts feeling schizophrenic and harrowing (perfect for the split's concept) and Natalie's sounding like a more black metal influenced Jacob Bannon. There is a concept strewn across all the songs, revolving around cannibalism in a post-apocalyptic world, and the mental/physical effects it has on the story's main character. This shit is fucking tight.

Slightly prefer the Wildspeaker side actually which I didn't expect going into it. Really good split album between two bands at the top of their game.
