Frakasm are a band from France that plays an old school form of gore/death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Century Of Decline" which was released by Great Dane Records.
Melodic guitar leads start off the album before going into a very fast and brutal direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats while the vocals are mostly death metal growls along with a few screams as well a s the riffs also utilizing a great amount of dark sounding melodies.
A lot of the music sounds like it could of easily been recorded and released more than 20 years ago while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic fashion and a couple of the tracks are long and epic in length and the music always remains heavy.
Frakasm plays a style of gore/death metal that goes back to the early 90's era of the genre, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover religion, hatred, war, extinction, death and despotism themes.
In my opinion Frakasm are a very great sounding old school gore/death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Cerebral Torture" "Inferni Gloria" and "In The Womb". 8 out of 10.
