Cicatrix are a band from Poland that plays a brutal mixture of death metal and grindcore and this is a review of their 2016 album "Suffocated Faith" which was released by Infernum Media.
Dark sound effects start off the album and bring in the atmosphere of a horror movie before going into a heavier musical direction along with some dark sounding melodies and once the death metal growls and blast beats kick in the music starts bringing in more of a grindcore style that has some 90's influences.
At times the vocals can get very guttural and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and horror movie samples also make a return on later tracks while some of the songs are very short in length and they also bring in cover's of Dead Infections "After Of Accident II" and Terrorizer's "Storm Of Stress" and as the album progresses high pitched screams are added into certain sections of the recording and the whole album also remains true to a very heavy and brutal sound from beginning to ending of the recording.
Cicatrix plays a musical style that takes the more brutal forms of death metal and grindcore and mixes them together to create a very heavy sounding recording, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover death, gore, pain and hatred themes.
In my opinion Cicatrix are a very great sounding brutal mixture of death metal and grindcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Unlimited Hate" "Suffocated Faith" "Sins Of The Past" and "Despicable Mutation". 8 out of 10.
