Grimus are a band from New Jersey that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style I would describe as being brutal death metal with a slam edge and this is a review of their self released 2013 album "Omnicide".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of brutal sounding 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 are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast death metal riffs that are very heavy and brutal sounding with some grind and slam elements in the riffing as well as some melody along with a brief use of clean playing, while the lead guitars are very technical and melodic sounding death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals range from deep death metal growls to high pitched screams, while the lyrics cover violent and hateful themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound for being a self released recording.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Grimus and if you are a fan of brutal and technical sounding death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Decimation" "The Hut Of Extinction" "Draped In Fear" and "Within Isolation". RECOMMENDED BUY.
