Assault are a band from Singapore that plays a melodic mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "The Fallen Reich" which will be released in May by Transcending Obscurity Asia.
A very heavy guitar sound starts off the album and the riffs also bring in a great amount of melody and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard while the vocals bring in a mixture of high pitched screams and death metal growls along with the solos and leads also using a great amount of melody.
Elements of thrash can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and there is also a perfect balance between both old school and modern influences and when tremolo picking is utilized it also adds in a touch of black metal and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the music always remains very heavy.
Assault plays a musical style that takes melodic death metal and mixes it in with modern thrash to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover war, rebellions, and death themes.
In my opinion Assault are a very great sounding melodic mixture of death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Genocidal Conspiracy" and "Final Solution". 8 out of 10.
