Trails of Anguish - _Relentless Abhorrence of Misery's Grievance_
(Independent, 2001)
by: Adrian Bromley (8 out of 10)
From the cold regions of Canada -- otherwise known as the black metal province of Quebec -- comes the duo of Trails of Anguish. Playing a rather feisty black metal in the vein of mid-era Immortal, the duo waste no time at laying waste to the listener with punishing opener "The Scythe of Engrieved Melancholia" and onto such epic battle cry of "Reaping Life's Frailty" and the haunting "The Final Soliloquy". With a rabid flow of things, rarely pausing for any kind of atmospheric black metal sound, Trails of Anguish play fast and furious, storming through this five-song EP like a massive storm blast. With a rather impressive (though still fairly raw) sound, this is one of the best black metal bands I have heard from Canada in some time -- Quebec's Frozen Shadows and the East Coast's Burning Moon being the others worth mentioning. With a lot of strength and determination, Trails of Anguish could make an impact with their music; we'll just wait to see if others grasp onto their black metal assault. Intense and basking in mighty momentum.
