Young and in the Way are a four piece group from North Carolina, U.S. The band was formed in 2009. Their sound is a blend of black metal, hardcore, and crust punk. ”When Life comes to Death” which was released yesterday is their newest release.
The album contains eleven songs. This is black metal. I’m sorry what i mean is that this is exceptional black metal. These guys have renewed this sound. This may be a bold statement perhaps but their songs speak for themselves. Check out ”Betrayed by Light”. What a great song to start this record. ”Self Inflicted” blew my mind. That song for some reason game me a ”raining blood” vibe in its intro. ”We are Nothing” is an amazing, massive song. It is my favorite song from this album. ”Final Dose” is a kick-ass song. Wait of course till you listen to ”Take my Hand”. An epic song in my opinion. The last song ”Embrace Extinction” is cold, cold dark and heavy, as black metal is supposed to be.
Hands down one of the best releases of 2014. The album’s production is awesome. It kinda reminded me the sound of Satyricon’s ”Volcano”. What else is left t obe said? Their vocals are great. Their riffs are colossal. They’re like frozen arrows, that will go through your soul. Listen to ”When Life Comes to Death” and find out for yourself.
P.S The only thing i didn’t really get is their name. I mean ”Young and in the Way”? Does this name really fit? Perhaps there’s a story behind that name that we’re unaware of. Or perhaps some bands have really strange names but are awesome. Like His Hero is Gone.
