Satyrasis are a band from Michigan that plays a mixture of progressive, heavy, technical, melodic death, and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "...Of The Dead" which was released by Seventh Rule Records.
An atmospheric sound along with some melodic guitar riffs start off the album and the solos and leads also continue in that tradition and the music also brings in elements of progressive rock and after awhile more elements of thrash metal are added onto the recording along with a great amount of blast beats.
When vocals are added into the music they are very aggressive sounding thrash style screams and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and at time s the music can be very symphonic along with some of the tracks being very long and epic in length and after awhile the riffs start incorporating more tech and melodic death metal elements.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some clean playing being added into certain sections of the recording which also gives the songs more of a progressive rock feeling and as the album progresses spoken word parts can be heard in certain sections of the recording and on some of the songs the thrash style vocals also mix a bit of melody in with the aggression.and they also do a cover of Rush's "Circumstance" that also has more of a punk or hardcore edge than the original version before closing the album with 2 of their own tracks.
Satyrasis takes a very extreme and progressive style of thrash metal and mixes in elements of the more technical and melodic sides of death metal and also adds in a touch of black metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover death, politics and horror.
In my opinion Satyrasis are a very great sounding mixture of progressive, heavy, technical, melodic death, and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Foot In Each Grave" "The Imp Of The Perverse" "Circumstances" and "In Ruins". 8 out of 10.
