Lelahell are a band from Algeria that plays a very brutal and melodic form of death metal with some black metal elements and this is a review of their 2012 ep "Al Intihar" which was released by Goressimo Records.
A very fast and brutal sound starts off the ep along with a great amount of blast beats as well as adding death metal growls into the music while some old school thrash elements and black metal screams can also be heard at times and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are very melodic sounding and spoken words can also be heard at times while the songs bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the riffs also use a decent amount of melody and some pig squeals can be heard a t times and they add in a touch of deathcore and some tracks also add in synths which also add symphonic elements onto the recording and there is also a brief use of acoustic guitars which gives the music more of a middle eastern style and they close the ep with a cover of Mayhem's "Freezing Moon".
Lelahell plays a musical style that takes a brutal and melodic style of death metal and adds in some thrash, black metal and deathcore elements to create something very original, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover philosophy and society themes.
In my opinion Lelahell are a very great sounding death metal band with elements of thrash, black metal and deathcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out t his band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Emperor" and "Into The Past". 8 out of 10.
