It Came From Beneath - The Last Sun EP

The Last Sun EP cover art

It Came From Beneath are a Deathcore Metal five piece from Lyon, France who formed in 2010. They released their debut album, When No Light Remains in 2013, following their first self-titled EP in 2010. Now with a mix of new material, a cover song and some remasters of previous material, they are back with The Last Sun EP.

The opening title track, is suspenseful and eerie with a sonic ambience, with mighty demonic raw vocals to accompany the catchy chugging riffs and crashing furious drums. The guitar work however goes beyond your typical death metal, being complex and having a evil presence. This is doing the Deathcore genre proud, and should be repeated many times to fully appreciate it!

Up next we have 'The Burden', again bringing with it a dark resonance, flowing perfectly from the opener. This is a deeply belligerent offering, where they stampede and blast through with all they have got, with the harmonious layers of the guitars, making it stand out further.

We are treated to an unexpected cover of Australian rapper/songwriter, Iggy Azalea song, 'Work' , which against all odds, dare I say 'works' exceptionally well, and they is no questioning that they put their own stamp on this, and deliver a very melodic deathcore rendition indeed! 

Back to their own creations with, 'Broken End' which was originally released on their first EP. It has been re-analyzed and revitalised to a more experienced level, that a band naturally come to learn, but still relentlessly battles on, with a crashing storm of heavy darkness, with impressive guitar licks and well timed breakdowns and tempo changes.

To end this ferocious high speed affair is, 'The Answer Remains Unknown', which again is an updated trimmed version, as it originally comes from their debut album. This is potentially the most groove ridden thunderous song featured, with brilliant memorable rhythms, melodic intelligible guitars throughout and flawless brutal vocals heightening this.

It Came From Beneath may have unleashed a new EP containing a cover song and remastered versions of their previous material, however that doesn't detract from the high enjoyment and excitement that this has to offer! Deathcore can sometimes be too glum and bleak to really make a defining impact or dent in the genre, however with their sonic resonant vibes and complex brutal, well structured compositions, they still manage to grab your attention and stand out, so The Last Sun is most certainly worth listening to!
