KNELT ROTE (USA) – ‘Trespass’ CD
Knelt Rote has emerged over the past few years as something of an anomaly in the underground. While the band’s earliest work veered heavily into Grindcore, the band’s style has broadened considerably over the past several releases as the band has fleshed out the composition of its tracks and added more elements of Death and Black metal into its body of work. Listening to the band’s third full-length, “Trespass,” it is clear that Knelt Rote executes these more nuanced strains of extreme metal with a rare sense of precision and focus. What further separates Knelt Rote from its peers is the heavy Harsh Noise influence that the band incorporates into its work adding additional layers of depth and dimension. “Trespass,” like its predecessor “Insignificance,” is textured and fluid in a way that few extreme metal albums are.
