Adamantine are a band from Portugal that plays a mixture of melodic death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Heroes & Villains" which was released by Allegiance Recordings.
Dark and tragic sounding synth start off the album along with some symphonic elements and after the intro the music goes into more of a heavier and melodic direction along with the faster sections of the songs using a great amount of blast beats and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
Vocals are mostly death metal growls along with clean singing being utilized at times while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as mixing in a great amount of modern thrash elements and some tracks also add in touches of progressive and heavy rock and spoken word parts are also used briefly and a later track also brings in a small amount of acoustic guitars and whispers.
Adamantine plays a musical style that takes melodic death metal and mixes it with modern thrash to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Lusitanian Myths and War themes.
In my opinion Adamantine are a very great sounding mixture of melodic death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Heroes & Villains" "Remember Who You Are" "Grudge" and "Everything Ends". 8 out of 10.
