Dichotomy are a band from Ireland that plays a very technical and melodic form of death metal and this is a review of their self released 2013 album "Paradigms".
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 strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mod paced to fast technical death metal riffs that utilize a great amount of melody in the riffing, while the lead guitars are very technical and melodic sounding death metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars which are only utilized briefly use finger picking and full chords to add more progressive elements to the recording.
Vocals range from deep death metal growls to high pitched screams, while the lyrics cover philosophical and metaphysical themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound for being a self released recording where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Dichotomy are a very great sounding melodic and technical death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Empyrean" "All Seeing Eye" and "Of Strife Of Discord". RECOMMENDED BUY.
