Swine Overlord are a band with members from both New York and New Jersey that plays a very brutal and progressive form of slam death metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Entheogenesis" which will be released on September 23rd by Gore House Productions.
Clean guitars start off the album and after the intro sound effects can also be heard at times before going into a heavier direction which also shows death metal growls and high pitched screams beign added onto the recording and the vocals also get very guttural at times and you can also hear all of t he musical instruments that are present on this recording.
At times the music can get very progressive and the guitar solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard while the mid tempo sections are heavily influenced by slam and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody and classical guitars are also added on some songs and there is also a brief use of spoken word samples and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and one song also brings in pianos.
Swine Overlord takes a very brutal style of slam death metal and mixes it with progressive elements to create an original sound of their own, the production sounds very professional w gile the lyrics cover gore, horror, and religion themes.
In my opinion Swine Overlord are a very great sounding progressive slam death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Severed From the Godhead" "Procreating the Offspring Of The Gods" "Altars Of A Putrid Resurrection" and "Gazing Into the Shadow's Maw". 8 out of 10.
