Embryonic Devourment are a band from Northern California that plays a very brutal form of death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Reptillian Agneda" which was released by Deepsend.
The album starts out with symphonic sounds before going into a more fast and brutal direction along with some growls and screams as well as slower mosh parts and after awhile there are some clean parts along with some powerful sounding bass as well as a good amount of melody and technical elements.
When the album goes into the next song spoken word samples are added in as well as some brutal blast beats while also sticking to a more technical direction and when solos are added into the music they seem to be influenced by the later works of Death and on the 4th song acoustic guitars are added onto the recording and on the nest song occult and esoteric elements are added into the brutality.
On this album Embryonic Devourment bring in a different approach to death metal both lyric and music wise and they also have a small amount of grindcore influences in the screams and they also are very talented at mixing brutality and technical parts together.
Song lyrics cover Masonic, Occult, Reptilian, and Gore themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Embryonic are a very great sounding heavy, brutal and technical death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Masonic Angeldust" "Reptiliphiliac" and ""Whilst The Rich Dine". 8/5 out of 10.
