An Act Of Treachery are a band from Austria that plays a mixture of melodic death metal, thrash, groove and metalcore and this is a review of their self released 2013 album "Reflections Of A Dying World".
The album starts out with a heavy modern metal sound along with aggressive vocals which are in a more hardcore direction while also adding in melody and you can hear a great amount of thrash influences in the music while also having the heaviness of death metal.
When the album goes into the second song clean guitars are added into the music while sticking to mostly a heavier direction as well as adding in a more melodic death metal sound as well as bringing in solos and lead and as the album progresses elements of groove and metalcore are added onto the album.
On this album An Act of Treachery combine a lot of many different extreme metal genres to create an album that is very heavy, yet catchy and melodic all at the same time and even the groove and metalcore elements do not water down the record.
Song lyrics cover violent and everyday themes, while the production 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 An Act Of Treachery are a very decent sounding mixture of melodic death meta, thrash, groove and metalcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "In Chains" "Let Them Burn" "Beginning Of An End" and "Worlds Fall Apart". 7/5 out of 10.
