Irate Architect are a band from Germany that plays a very technical and brutal form of death metal with a touch of grindcore and this is a review of their 2005 ep "Born Blood Portrait" which was released by Third Alliance Records.
Avant garde sounds start off the ep and after the intro the music goes into a heavier direction and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and melodies can also be heard at times and the vocals are mostly death metal growls and screams and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
Elements of grindcore can also be heard at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the riffs also get very technical and brutal at times and all of the tracks are very short in length and there is also another avant garde intro before returning back to a heavier direction and closing the ep with an outro and none of the songs ever use any solos and leads.
Irate Architect played a style of death metal on this recording that was very brutal and technical while also mixing in a very heavy grindcore influence, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover anxiety, paranoia, and dark humoured based love stories.
In my opinion Irate Artchitect are a very great sounding brutal and technical death metal band with a touch of grindcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Pathfinder" and "Chicks On Speed". 8 out of 10.
