Heathenspawn are a band from Sydney, Australia that plays a very melodic form of death metal and this is a review of their self released and self titled 2017 ep.
Clean playing and synths start off the ep along with some spoken word parts a few seconds later which also leads up to more of a heavier and melodic direction along with a mixture of death metal growls and screams a few seconds later and all of the musical instruments sound very powerful.
When guitar solos and leads a re utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion while whispers are utilized and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they give the songs more of an 80's metal feeling and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the faster sections of the songs bringing in a decent amount of blast beats and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Heathenspawn plays a style of melodic death metal t hat is very catchy and heavy sounding, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism and Anti Religion themes.
In my opinion Heathenspawn are a very great sounding melodic death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Bound In Flesh" and "The Vatican Burns". 8 out of 10,
