Dissector are a band from Russia that plays a very melodic form of death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Planetary Cancer" which was released by Mazzar Records.
Movie samples start off the album before going into more of a heavy and melodic musical direction which also utilizes thrash style vocals and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the solos and leads also use a great amount of melody and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
A lot of old school extreme metal influences can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording while the music still sounds very modern and while the songs are in mostly a melodic death metal direction the vocals go for a different direction while sometimes adding in a more death/thrash approach and there is also a brief use of keyboards on a couple of tracks while the main focus is more on a heavy and melodic metal style and female vocals are added onto the last track.
Dissector plays a musical style that takes a melodic style of death metal and adds it in more with a thrash vocal style which makes their music stand out a bit more, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and hateful themes.
In my opinion Dissector are a very great sounding mixture of melodic death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Fallen One" "Perfect Smile" "The Shape Of Things To Come" and "Invisible Lives". 8 out of 10.
