The Review:

Victoria BC export Resent set out to form the nastiest, most disdain drenched sludge they could muster when they formed in 2017; with the release of “Crosshairs”, their debut LP, it is safe to say they have done just that.

Laden with disturbing voice over tracks, shrieking harmonics, and the grimiest riffs this side of Meth Drinker, “Crosshairs” is a disparaging and crushing 45 minutes of down and dirty sludge. Channeling their influences from 90s sludge “classics” Grief, Noothgrush, and Corrupted, the genre is flayed open and excoriated, like a festering wound, sinking into the darkest depths of putridity. Each of the 6 tracks are over 5 mins long, droning the listener into a stupor of aggravated despair.

If “Crosshairs” is any indication of what Resent has to offer, expect to see them leaving their mark on extreme metal. If you are out for something slow, heavy, and unrelenting, this is sure to satisfy; its primal approach to song writing, with its raw production plows over the soundwaves, and straight into your skull.
