Hemotoxin are a band from California that plays a melodic and progressive mixture of death and thrash metal along with a touch of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Biological Enslavement" which will be released in April by Unspeakable Axe Records.
Melodic and technical guitar riffs start off the album along with some drum beats before getting even more heavier and also adding in screaming vocals and th e music is very heavily rooted in the early 90's and spoken word parts can be heard at times and when the music speeds up it also brings in a great amount of blast beats.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they add even more melody, talent, and skill to the recording while also being very progressive at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and a lot of the vocals and riffs go back to a mid 80's style of thrash while also being very close to the earlier death metal style of that time period.
You can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording and some songs also bring in a small amount of clean playing and some songs also bring in a touch of black metal and the also bring in an instrumental track which also demonstrates how talented they are on their instruments before closing the album with another vocal song.
Hemotoxin plays a musical style that goes back to the mid 80's and early 90's styles of death and thrash metal while also taking the music into more of a progressive and melodic direction and adding in a touch of black metal to create a style of their own, the production sounds very old school yet professional at the same time while the lyrics cover death, gore, science fiction and Lovecraft themes.
In my opinion Hemotoxin are a very great sounding melodic and progressive mixture of death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Regression" "Forgotten Faces" "The Alchemist" and "Transparent Lies". 8 out of 10.
