Requiem are a band from Switzerland that plays an brutal form of death metal with a touch of grindcore and this is a review of their 2018 album "Global Resistance Rising" which will be released in March by F.D.A Records.
A very heavy and brutal sound starts off the album along with a great amount of blast beats while the vocals are mostly death metal growls along with a few screams as well as the riffs also bringing in a great amount of melody and the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of grindcore elements.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the solos and leads have a very melodic yet old school style to them and all of the musical instruments also sound very powerful and the music always remains very heavy and brutal and on the closing track a brief use of radio samples and spoken word parts can also be heard.
Requiem plays a style of death metal that is very brutal while also mixing in elements of grindcore to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover society, death and killing themes.
In my opinion Requiem are a very great sounding brutal mixture of death metal and grindcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "For The Blind To See" "Vultures" "Salvation In Vein" and "Fire In The Hole". 8 out of 10.
