Furtherial are a band from Turkey that plays a melodic mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Destroying Atropolis" which was released by WormHoleDeath Records.
Drum beats and clean singing start off the album and after a minute the music goes into a heavier direction along with some screams and power metal singing which also use some death metal growls.
On the following tracks clean playing is brought into the music at times while the music sticks mostly to a heavier direction and they also start bringing in solos and leads along with small amounts of blast beats and the band finds its sound with a mixture of power, thrash and modern melodic death metal.
As the album progresses the band starts bringing in a good amount of power thrash elements and adds in some early groove metal along with the heaviness of death metal to update this old school sound for the modern day and on one of the later tracks acoustic guitars are brought into the music briefly for an instrumental and the band returns to a heavier direction on the following track while the last song utilizes a small amount of acoustics.
Furtherial bring a sound to the album where the old school meets the modern day form of metal with the band combining thrash, groove, power and melodic death metal together to create an album that is very diverse and heavy all at the same time, the production is very professional sounding and the lyrics cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion Furtherial are a very great sounding mixture of melodic death, power and modern thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Shadow's Riot" "Sworn For Revenge" "Longing Spirit" and "Defeat". 8 out of 10.
