Unreqvited – “The Autumn Fire” (Premiere)

Unreqvited

Unreqvited is a one-man black metal band newcomer. Bold for a debut, Disquiet outlines some genre maxims. Buildups require utmost patience. Bipolar oscillations between the forceful and the taciturn generate friction. This makes room for vocal coloring; here, echoey wails and stabbing screams. There’s a disorder comorbid with these sporadic mood shifts: the anxiety of pain but also that which gives you freedom from it.

Check out the exclusive premiere of “The Autumn Fire” below, Disquiet’s grandiose introduction (well, following the short ambient track “Birth,” an appropriate opening name). Unreqvited augments the depressing with the uplifting, similar to Ghost Bath’s haunting nature or Lotus Thief’s greenness. It’s full circle: life to death, birth’s majesty and death’s morose brooding, ever lingering, but ultimately bookending the same story. Disquiet as a whole proceeds in this manner: from “Birth” to “Death” there is a journey of massive peaks and bottomless caves.

Sound-walls mount themselves on steadily upward chord progressions; ambiance germinates from discordant intermissions, saddened and pianistic. Structurally, Unreqvited makes no rush toward any climaxes, but they come as constant surprises. After regaining its strength at artistically strategic locations, Disquiet flexes blastbeat muscle without hyperextending.
