Denmark's Illdisposed have returned with a new album which shows them returning back to t he brutal and melodic style of death metal they played in the 90's and this is a review of their 2016 album "Grey Sky Over Black Town" which will be released in May by Massacre Records.
A very heavy sound along with melodic guitar leads start off the album before adding in death metal growls and brutal blast beats as well as going into a faster direction and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the music is probably there most brutal stuff in 20 years.
At times the riffs can be very melodic and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the songs bring back a lot of their 90's style and the vocals also get very guttural at times and later tracks also bring in a small amount of high pitched screams and as the album progresses a couple of the tracks also bring in a brief use of keyboards and some of t he heavier riffing also brings in a small amount of tremolo picking while a later song brings in a brief use of spoken word samples and towards the end of the recording one of the bonus tracks brings in a brief use of clean playing.
Illdisposed creates an album that goes back to their roots and focuses less on groove and melodic vocals to create a very heavy sounding recording, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and hateful themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Illdisposed and if you are a fan of their early material, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Your Darkest Son" "The After All" "Setting Sail" and "This Is Not The Ride". 8 out of 10.
