This is a review of a split album between Ontario, Canada's Fumigation and Quebec, Canada's The Path To R'lyeh called "Invasion" which will be released on April 28th by CDN Records and we will start off the review with Fumigation a band that plays a very brutal form of death metal.
Their side of t he split starts out with a sci-fi atmosphere before going into a heavier direction which also introduces technical guitar leads into their songs and all of the musical instruments sound very powerful and after awhile deep death metal growls start to make their presence known.
A great amount of brutality can be heard in the guitar riffing and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats are utilized and the songs bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while t he riffs also use a decent amount of melody and the mid tempo sections of t he songs also mix in a decent amount of slam elements and their is also a brief use of spoken word samples and clean playing before returning back to a more brutal direction.
Fumigation plays a style of death metal that is very brutal and technical while also adding in a touch of slam, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics insects, rodents and chemical themes
In my opinion Fumigation are a very great sounding brutal and technical death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Forced Vaginal Harbourage" and "A Beard Full Of Maggots".
Next up is The Path To R'lyeh a band that plays a very brutal and technical form of death metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a very heavy sound where you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on their side of t he recording and when the music speeds up a great amount of brutal blast beats can be heard while t he vocals are mostly deep death metal growls with a few screams.
Clean playing can be heard in some parts of their music while the riffs also bring in a small amount of melody and the vocals also get very guttural at times and the solos and leads are done in a very technical fashion and there side of t he split also always remains very heavy.
The Path To R'lyeh plays a style of death metal that is very technical and brutal, t he production sounds very professional while the lyrics are based upon the writings of H.P Lovecraft.
In my opinion The Path To R'lyeh are a very great sounding technical and brutal death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of t he split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dream Eater" and "Extra-Terrestrial Abomination".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of brutal and technical death metal. 8 out of 10.
