Analepsy are a band from Portugal that plays a very brutal and slamming form of death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Atrocities From Beyond" which was released as a joint effort between Rising Nemesis Records and Vomit your Shirt.
Sci fi sounds start off the album before going into a heavier direction and spoken word samples are also used at times and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard while the vocals are mostly guttural death metal growls and the mid tempo sections of the songs bring in elements of slam.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the riffs also use a decent amount of melody while also mixing in harmonics and you can also hear a great amount of east coast influences throughout the recording and spoken word samples are also used briefly and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion.
Analepsy plays a style of slam death metal that is very brutal and sci fi orientated, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover aliens, gore, murder, and esoteric themes.
In my opinion Analepsy are a very great sounding brutal slam death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Apocalyptic Premonition" "Witnesses Of Extinction" "Depts Of Agony" and "Omens Of Return". 8 out of 10.
