Martyrion are a band from Germany that plays a very melodic form of death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Our Dystopia" which was released by Boersma Records.
Sci fi sounds starts off the album before adding in heavy guitars which also use a great amount of melody and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording as well as some atmospheric sounds and after death metal growls and high pitched screams make their presence known on the recording.
A great amount of melodic guitar leads can be heard throughout the recording while some songs add in spoken word parts and clean playing and the music also sounds very modern and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the tracks are long and epic in length and some tracks also bring in a small amount of blast beats and there is also a brief use of clean singing as the album progresses along with also adding in an instrumental and they add orchestra's on the closing song.
Martyrion plays a style of melodic death metal that goes for more of a modern take on the genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover post apocalyptic life and science fiction themes.
In my opinion Martyrion are a very great sounding melodic death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "I In The End" "What We Leave Behind" "The End Of Eternity" and "No Fear, No Obedience". 8 out of 10.
