Macabre/Grim Scary Tales/Decomposed Records/2011 CD Review

Macabre are a band from Chicago, Illinois that has been around for 25 years and are on the pionering bands in grindcore and this is a review of their 2011 album "Grim Scary Tales" which was released by Decomposed Records.

  Drums range from slow, midpaced to fast with some brutal blast beats, while the bass playing sounds very powerful and has an old school metal feel to it.

  Rhythm guitars range from slow, midpaced to fast death/grind riffs with some thrash influences as well as influences from many different genres of music, while the lead guitars sound very technical and melodic with a classic rock edge being used at times, as for the accoustic guitars that have a folk/rock feel to them with some avant garde music influences.

  Vocals are mostly high pitched grindcore screams with some clean singing vocals being used at times, while the lyrics cover serial killers, horror films, and ancient history, as for the production it sounds very professional and heavy with all of the musical instruments having a brutal sound.

  In my opinion this is another great album from Macabre, ad if you where a fan of their previous albums, you will not be dissapointed. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Countess Bathory" "Dracula" "Lizzy Borden" and "The Kiss Of Death". RECEMMONDED BUY.
