Spirit Of Rebellion are a band from Quebec, Canada that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very brutal form of death metal with a touch of black metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "A Taste of Death" which will be re-issued in March by PRC Music.
Ritualistic sounding synths along with spoken word samples start off the album before going into a very fast and brutal direction which also introduces blast beats and death metal growls onto the recording and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of dark sounding melodies and all of the musical instruments sound very powerful.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when screams are utilized they bring in a touch of black metal and when solos and leads are utilized they are very melodic while also adding in more of an old school death metal style and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts.
Spirit Of Rebellion played a style of death metal on this recording that had the modern brutality while also adding in some old school influences and a touch of black metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness and death themes along with the songs being written in a mixture of French and English.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Spirit Of Rebellion and if you are a fan of brutal death metal with a blackened touch, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Beg" "The Great Harbester" and "Imminent End". 8 out of 10/
