Sordid Flesh are a band from Sweden that plays an old school form of death metal with elements of heavy, thrash and black metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Torturer" which was released by Vic Records.
"The Thelema Way" begins with some distorted and dark clean guitar playing and you can hear some synths in the background before going into a heavy and fast direction along with some brutal sounding blast beats which lead up to some deep death metal growls and the music takes a 90s direction and close to the end the synths and clean sections make a return to the song before adding in some guitar leads and solos before getting heavy again.
"Mark OF The Fallen" begins with heavy and old school sounding guitar riffs and bass riffs along with some drums before the growls kick in along with some punk influences and small guitar leads that come in and out of the song and after awhile the music speeds up a bit along with some melodic guitar riffing but mostly sticking to slow and mid paced sections and towards the end there is a brief use of real guitar solos being utilized.
"Rites At The Cemetery" begins with some dark sounding synths and a few second later heavy guitar and bass riffs along with some drums and guitar leads kick in and then the music gets a lot more faster along with some blast beats and deep growls and after awhile the music returns to the slower parts but it does go back to the faster riffing at times.
