TRITA: Tunguskan: CDEP

Trita describes themselves as post-rock/post-metal/post-hardcore/pre-death, and despite that long-winded and unnecessarily complicated description, it’s fairly accurate. There are elements of metal, hardcore, and even math rock on these five songs. The traditional three-piece includes two vocalists, both of which are screamy in their approach. The first track, “The Isolationist,” begins dreamy and has clean singing vocals. But after that, the band puts some serious muscle into the music and kicks it into some heavy territory for the rest of the tracks. I like the mix of styles and the band does it well. It’ll be interesting to see where Trita goes from here. –Kurt Morris (Self-released, trita.bandcamp.com)
