Carnivora are a band from Massachusetts that plays a modern mixture of melodic death and groove metal and this is a review of their 2015 ep "The Vision" which was released by Manshark Entertainment.
A very fast and melodic death metal sound starts of the ep along with some blast beats and a mixture of growls and screams while t he mid paced sections bring in elements of groove metal and the solos and leads the band uses utilize a great amount of talent and skill and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
While the music sounds very modern you can hear elements of 90's era Swedish melodic death metal in the bands musical style and some of the screams bring in a touch of metalcore and some of the riffs bring in thrash influences and one of the songs has a slight symphonic touch while the music focuses more on guitars and traditional metal instruments and they all have a very powerful sound to them.
Carnivora plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in melodic death metal but also brings in a touch of groove and modern metal into their musical style, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover anti christian themes.
In my opinion Carnivora are a very great sounding mixture of melodic death and groove metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Vision In Red" and "The Reek Of Defeat". 8 out of 10.
