Bladecatcher are a solo project from Colorado that plays a very primitive and slamming form of death metal and this is a review of his 2015 ep "Observe" which was released by EEE Recordings.
A very dark and primitive death metal sound starts off the ep along with some growling vocals and the music has more of a lo-fi approach to death metal while there are a great amount of slam elements present on the recording and after awhile the music brings in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
On the other tracks the music starts adding in more of a brutal sound along with some guttural growls and the guitar riffs can be melodic and technical at times and there are also some programmed blast beats in the faster sections of the recording and the songs also always remain true to a very heavy death metal sound.
Bladecatcher plays a style of slam death metal that is still brutal but in more of a lo-fi and primitive direction than most bands of this genre, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover mythology themes.
In my opinion Bladecatcher are a very great sounding primitive, slam death metal project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Disemboweling The Moon Goddess". 8 out of 10.
