<Redacted> are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a melodic mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 album "Alien Nation".
Spoken word samples start off the album along with some melodic guitars in the background which start getting more powerful after each second and it sets up the pace for a good mixture of growls and screams and the music also combines death metal with a more modern day thrash sound as well as having a heavy Hypocrisy influence in their musical style and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Electronica music elements can be heard in certain sections of the recording and after awhile more old school thrash influences are added into the bands musical style while some songs can be very atmospheric at times and the spoken word samples also make their return at times and the music also has a trace of hardcore at times while some of the vocals on some of the later tracks bring in a black metal feeling and they also do a Motorhead cover and a Sepultura tribute.
<Redacted> plays a melodic mixture of death and thrash metal that is heavily influenced by Hypocrisy but also has a sound of its own and adding in a lot of diversity, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover U.F.Os, Conspiracy Theories, Reptilian, new World Order, Illuminati and Occult themes.
In my opinion <Redacted> are a very great sounding melodic mixture of death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Truth Is A Privilege Not A Right" "Skywatchers" and "They Know". 8 out of 10.
