Faustian Dripfeed are a band from Norway that has been featured before in this zine and plays a melodic form of death metal and this is a review f their self released 2017 ep "Faustian Escapades".
Spoken word samples start off the ep before going into more of a heavier and faster direction which also introduces blast beats onto the recording while the vocals are a mixture of death metal growls and high pitched screams along with t he solos and leads being done in a very melodic fashion.
A great amount of melody can also be heard in the riffing along with some acoustic guitars also being used briefly while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's, electronic music elements can also be heard briefly.
Faustian Dripfeed creates another recording that remains true to the melodic death metal style that was established on their previous release, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Faustian Dripfeeed and if you are a fan of melodic death metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Headless Body In The Topless Bar". 8 out of 10.
