Unchained are a band from France that plays a very melodic form of death metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "Oncoming Chaos" which was released by M & O Music.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them, as for the synths they are only used briefly and they bring a very dark and atmospheric sound to the music.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine melodic metal with violent death metal along with a brief use of soft and clean playing, while the lead guitars combine melodic death metal and classic metal together in the guitar solos and leads.
Vocals range from deep death metal growls to high pitched melodic death metal screams as well as a brief use of clean singing power metal vocals, while the lyrics cover violent, everyday, and anti religion themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Unchained are a very great sounding melodic death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical style, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Infernal Death Machine' "Russia" "The God Delusion" and "Costra Nosta". RECOMMENDED BUY.
