Devour The Martyr are a band from Australia that mixes melodic death metal with thrash and this is a review of their 2011 ep "Wasted On The Living".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown into the music at times, 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 melodic death metal and thrash together as well as adding some influences from hardcore and groove metal as well as a brief use of clean playing, while the lead guitars are very technical and melodic sounding
Vocals range from high pitched melodic death metal screams, deep growls, metalcore style shouting and some spoken word samples, while the lyrics cover hateful and everyday themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound for being a self released recording.
In my opinion Devour The Martyr are a very great sounding hybrid of melodic death and thrash metal with elements of hardcore and groove metal and if you are a fan of this style of music, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Wasted On The Living" and "No Suicide Without Homicide". RECOMMENDED BUY.
