Killing Addiction are a band form Florida that has been around for more than 20 years and plays a brutal and old school style of death metal with a touch of grindcore and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Shores Of Oblivion" which was released by Xtreem Music.
A very heavy and brutal sound starts off the album along with some grooves, melodies and death metal growls and after awhile grindcore screams and melodic guitar leads are added onto the recording and the music is heavily rooted in the 90's while also sounding very modern at the same time.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the solos and leads also demonstrate a great amount of talent and skill and some of the riffs also bring in a touch of thrash and clean guitars are used briefly on the last track and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Killing Addiction creates a recording that is in the old school brutal death metal vein and also adding in a touch of grindcore and they also show a great amount of improvement from their 90's material, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover philosophy, religion and society themes.
In my opinion Killing Addiction are a very great sounding old school death metal band with a touch of grindcore and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Cult Of Decay" and "Into Shadow". 8 out of 10.
