Samskaras are a duo from Montreal, Quebec, Canada that plays a very technical and progressive form of death metal with a touch of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 ep "Asunder".
A very heavy and technical sound starts off the ep and when the music speeds up a great amount of brutal blast beats can be heard along with a small amount of black metal screams and a great amount of death metal growls can be heard and the riffs also mix in a great amount of melody and groove.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while the guitar leads are very melodic and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid apced and fast parts while the clean vocals gives the music more of a progressive feeling and there is also a brief use of clean and acoustic guitar playing.
Samskaras plays a style of death metal that is very technical and progressive while also adding in a touch of black metal, the production sounds very professional for being a self relesed recording while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Samskaras are a very great sounding technical and progressive death metal band with a touch of black metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Solar" and "Conqueror". 8 out of 10.
