Okay, let’s go ahead and get the obvious out of the way here: The Raven Autarchy sound a lot like Within The Ruins. This Spain-based technical deathcore group wear their influences on their sleeve, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The band just released their debut album Kaonashi and even though the musical style is similar, there are plenty of traits here that give it it’s own identity. It’s a great release, and you can stream the entire thing below:

The LP is laden with a heavy amount of guitar acrobatics amidst a soundscape of crushingly heavy grooves, and the vocals would be at home on any deathcore album. The band definitely stay consistent throughout the record and stick to what they’re comfortable with, but it’s a fun sound so that’s not really a problem. If you like what your hear, then be sure to keep up with the band on facebook.
