VHS are a band from Ontario, Canada that has been featured before in this zine and plays an old school mixture of death, metal, thrash and grindcore and this is a review of their self released 2016 album "Screaming Mad Gore" which will be released in April.
Horror movie samples start off the album and after the intro the music goes into a very fast grindcore direction along with some screams and death metal growls and the music is more close to the 80's era of the genre along with a touch of punk and the riffs also bring in melodies in some parts of the songs.
All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and horror movie samples also return in certain sections of the recording and most of the tracks are very short in length and halfway through the recording solos and leads are added into the music along with some thrash influences and all of the songs stick to a very heavy and old school extreme metal sound and one song also brings in a brief use of melodic singing in the background.
VHS creates another recording that takes the 80's styles of grindcore, death metal and thrash and mix them together while focusing more on the grind a lot more than on the previous release, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover 80's horror movies.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from VHS and if you are a fan of 80's death metal, grindcore and thrash, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Screaming Mad Gore" "Fornicating In The Furniture Store" "Radioactive rat Attack" and "Demons". 8 out of 10.
