The Forsaken are a band from Sweden that plays a mixture of melodic death metal and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "Beyond Redemption" which was released by Massacre Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of brutal sounding blast beats being thrown into t he music, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine brutal and melodic death metal with thrash metal, while the lead guitars are very chaotic and melodic sounding death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals range from high pitched melodic death metal screams to deep death metal growls as well as some death/thrash vocals in addition there is a brief use of spoken word samples, while the lyrics cover hateful and anti religion themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.
In my opinion The Forsaken are a very great sounding hybrid of melodic death metal and thrash and if you are a fan of this style of music, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Only Hell Remains" "Foul Messianic Grace" "There Is No God" and "Blessed With Wrath". RECOMMENDED BUY.
