Invidious are a band from Sweden that plays a very old school form of death metal with elements of thrash and black metal and this is a review of their 2013 ep "In Death" which was released by Sepulchral Voice Records.
"Black Blood" which is also the first song on the ep opens up with dark sound effects and background clean guitars and a few seconds later blackened metal growls come in and then it leads to heavy and melodic guitar riffs and drums before and then into a fast old school death metal direction along with blast beats and guitar leads and after awhile the music slows down a bit and you can hear the bass guitars and then alternating between fast and slow parts.
"Dead Salvation Spawn" begins with a guitar leads before the screams, fast and heavy guitar riffs and blast beats from the drums kick in and then the music alternates between mid paced and fast parts as well as bringing melody and guitar leads into certain sections of the song and you can also hear the bass guitars at times.
"Throne Of Death" starts up with heavy guitar and bass riffs along with some drums before going into a faster direction along with some blast beats and the the vocals kick in and after a couple off minutes the music slows down and the guitars get more melodic as well as adding in solos and leads before getting fast again.
"Visions" which is also the last song on the ep begins with a heavy guitar riff before adding in bass and drums and then going into a faster direction and introducing vocals to the song and then alternating between slow and fast parts a s well as mixing in some guitar solos and leads as well as a small amount of melody.
Song lyrics cover death and salvation, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy, professional and old school sound to it where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Invidious are a very great sounding old school death metal band with elements of thrash and black metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Black Blood" and "Throne Of Death". RECOMMENDED BUY.
