Obedience To Dictator are a band from Italy that has been featured before in this zine and plays a sci-fi mixture of death metal and deathcore along with a touch of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 ep "Hogzilla".
Spoken word samples start off the ep before adding in drums, heavy yet melodic riffs as well as a great mixture of growls and screams and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats are utilized and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slwo, mid paced and fast parts.
The music is very much balanced between the melodic and brutal styles of death metal while elements of deathcore and black metal can also be heard and spoken word samples also make their return in certain sections of the recording and when solos and leads they are done in more of a melodic fashion v and one track also samples Dead Can Dance before returning back to a heavier direction.
Obedience To Dictator creates another brutal recording that mixes death metal and deathcore together with a blackened touch while also being very melodic at the same time, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover sci-fi themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Obedience To Dictator and if you are a fan of death, black metal and deathcore, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Solar Warden" and "Let Me Sleep (We Have to Fight)". 8 out of 10.
