Garroter are a band from Poland that plays a very brutal and slamming form of death metal and this is a review of their self released 2013 album "Identity".
A very dark intro starts off the album and after the into the music starts getting a lot of heavier and goes for more of a modern and brutal death metal sound along with some angry sounding growls and after awhile the music starts incorporating more slam parts along with a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
When solos and leads are utilized they bring in more of a technical feeling to the bands musical style and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and when blast beats are utilized they add more brutality to the recording and at time s the music also incorporates a small amount of melodic riffing along with a touch of old school death metal elements while one of the tracks also add in bass leads that are in more of a funk rock direction while the main focus remains more on a brutal style of death metal while some tracks also bring in a touch of groove and thrash metal.
Garroter plays a style of death metal that is very brutal and adds in a lot of slam elements while the thrash and groove metal influences make their music sound a bit more different than most bands of this genre, the production sound s very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover real life, anti religion and mythology themes.
In my opinion Garroter are a very decent sounding slam death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Impact Fuze" "Identity" "Enuma Elish" and "God For Gods". 8 out of 10.
