Manipulation are a band from Poland that plays a mixture of death metal and deathcore and this is a review of their 2015 album "Ecstasy" which was released by Satanath Records.
Dark sound effects start off the album before going into a heavier and melodic musical direction along with some death metal growls and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard while the solos and leads are very technical sounding and you can also hear elements of groove at times.
Atmospheric sounds can be heard at times and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some songs also bring in a small amount of spoken word parts and some of the distortion has almost a shoegaze feeling at times while the last 2 tracks also brings in a brief use of clean playing and melodic singing.
Manipulation plays a musical style that mixes groove, death metal and deathcore to create a very heavy sounding recording, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Science and Anti Religion themes.
In my opinion Manipulation are a very great sounding mixture of death metal and deathcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out t his band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Insomnia" ""The Paradigm Of Existence" "Sunset Over Vatican" and "Ecstasy". 8 out of 10.
