Depressive and uplifting; a journey of massive peaks and bottomless caves. Unreqvited’s take on post-black metal is one that paints a canvas of musical diversity, with elements of expansive post-rock, tortured dsbm vocals, shimmering blackgaze melodies and grandiose orchestral segments.
"Mosaic I" might be Unreqvited’s most ambitious effort to date. Though only 40 minutes in length, their third LP explores far more hopeful territory, deeply rooted in post-rock and orchestral influences. Apart from the harrowing, tormented shrieking vocals, little to no black metal influences remain from their previous releases. It instead features majestic and hopeful refrains, wonderfully evocative progressions, and angelic, delicate atmospheres. The by-product is a captivating new sound that may be completely unique to the genre.
