T’wards the Sun’s Rising is the latest release from the Canadian act Aerith. The first thing that caught my attention is the less than stellar production. As many of you know, I’m a fan of well-produced records and have a hard time stomaching poor quality recordings, so without even getting through the first song I was a bit turned off.

I know this is probably not the fairest way to conduct a review, but it is what it is; I like good production and anything less immediately twists my horns. At any rate, the songs on this short four song demo are decent thrashy rockers that are not bad, but don’t really stand out either. For me T’wards the Sun’s Rising is a mediocre disc at best.
