Parricide are a band from Poland that played a brutal style of death metal with a touch of grind on this recording and this is a review of their 1999 album "Crude" which was re-issued in 2015 by Defense Records.
A very fast and brutal death metal sound starts off the album along with a great amount of blast beats before adding in growls and melodic riffs and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the solos and leads the band uses brings a great amount of melody to the recording while also being chaotic at times.
All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the songs remain true to the style of death metal that was big at times and some of the faster parts also bring in elements of grindcore and you can also hear a lot of Florida influences in the bands musical style and some of the riffs also get technical at times and every second and minute of the recording sticks to a heavy musical direction.
Parricide played a style of death metal that was brutal for its time on this recording and also brings in a touch of grind while still being mostly in the death metal direction, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Society, Destruction, Gore and Hypocrisy Of Religion.
In my opinion Parricide are a very great sounding death metal band with a touch of grind and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Nothing Twice" "Indignation" "Intoxicating Despair" and "Lofty Rhetoric". 8 out of 10.
