Zephyra are a band from Sweden that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of melodic death metal and thrash and this is a review of their 2016 album "As the World Collapses" which will be released in August by Inverse Records.
Dark sounding keyboards start off the album along with some elements of electronic music before adding in heavy guitars and melodic riffs and after awhile high pitched screams are added into the music along with some death metal growls and there is also some clean singing vocals being utilized at times.
At times elements of groove can be heard in the music and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and all of the musical instruments sound very powerful and some songs bring in back up gang shouts and blast beats along with a great amount of thrash influences can be heard in the music.
Zephyra creates a recording that takes melodic death metal, thrash and electronic music and mixes them together while also making everything catchy, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover real life themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Zephyra and if you are a fan of melodic death metal and modern thrash, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Virago" "Resurrect The Shame" "Gone By Dawn" and "As the World Collapses". 8 out of 10.
