Detonation are a band from t he Netherlands that plays a melodic mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2011 album "Reprisal" which will be released in September by Vic Records.
Movie samples start off the album before going into more of a heavy and melodic musical direction as well as speeding up and adding in blast beats and high pitched screams which also takes the music into more of a melodic death metal direction which is also very heavily influenced by thrash.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the fast riffs brings in a decent amount of tremolo picking and some tracks also bring in a small amount of clean guitars.
Detonation played a style of death metal on this recording that was very melodic while also mixing the modern thrash sound of 2011 in their songs to create their musical approach, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover politics and violence themes.
In my opinion Detonation are a very great sounding melodic 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 "Enslavement" "Ruptured" and "Insults To My Heritage". 8 out of 10.
