Sad Theory are a band from Brazil that plays a very melodic and progressive form of death metal and this is a review of t heir self released 2016 album " Vermina Audioclastia Postuma".
A very heavy and melodic sound starts off the album along with the faster sections using a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats and after awhile death metal growls make their presence known on the recording along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and high pitched s creams can also be heard at times while the solos and leads are very melodic and technical sounding and some of the riffs also add in a touch of black metal along with some elements of speed metal and as the album progresses the music starts getting more progressive without losing its heaviness and there is also a brief acoustic instrumental while the remaining tracks shows the music going back into a heavier direction and the music is very h eavily rooted in the 90's and they close the album with a heavier instrumental.
Sad Theory plays a style of death metal that is very dark, melodic and progressive in the more underground 90's tradition, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics are written in their native tongue and cover feelings, darkness and poetic themes.
In my opinion Sad Theory are a very great sounding progressive and melodic death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Algofobia" "Acalanto (Soothing Memories)" "Psicose" and "Karnofsky 40-0 (vito Letal)". 8 out of 10.
