The album opens right away with, with “Constant Pressure.” As soon as the song started, I knew I was going to like this album…..a lot! Being a fan of heavy, aggressive metal, I was excited from the first riff I heard on this opening track!
“Beyond Broken” is another highlight on this album! Heavy riffs, and some brilliant guitar solo work throughout! The guitar solo along side the fast rhythm guitar, and the thundering drums makes this song an instant hit off this album! And when the song slows down, the aggression level of the song gets cranked to 11! Although, only the third song on the album, after hearing it, I knew this album had a ton of potential!
One thing that really stands out about this album is you can really sense the amount of planning that went into each track. Every track is extremely well put together! There’s never really anytime that I thought, well that could’ve been left out. Each part of each song works together to provide an extremely great album!
As it sounds, I’m pretty pumped about this album, however, there were a few vocal parts of the album I didn’t care for, but really that only slightly takes away from this album! For the most part, this album will punch you right in your eardrums, and leave you wanting more!
Give Anubis Unbound, and “Through Cursed Eyes” a listen, and if you’re in the mood to break or smash things, then you’ve found the perfect soundtrack for it!

These five young men from Baltimore play an infectious blend of melodic death and metal core. Dual guitar action and a pummeling rhythm section blend nicely with the abrasive vocal style of Justin Severn. You know, for a D.I.Y. release, this album is pretty darn good. The production and sound quality, as well as the clarity , is right on par with some of the other bands that have huge labels backing them. As far as talent goes, these guys have plenty. Tasty riffs and song structures generate a very good vibe, making for a memorable experience. While the metal core movement is starting to fade a bit, I think Anubis Unbound have what it takes to breath new life back into the sub-genre. All they need is a good label and the world will be theirs for the taking. Until then, they will continue to play as many shows and rock as many people as possible, while continuing to strive for nothing short of excellence.
