Under Threat are a band from Columbia that plays a very melodic form of death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "The Prisoner" which was released by Hateworks.
A very dark sound starts off the album before going into a heavier direction while spoken word parts can also be heard briefly along with some clean guitars also being utilized at times as well as the riffs also bringing in a great amount of melody and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
Vocals are a mixture of screams and death metal growls while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of blast beats along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic style and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording as well as a couple of the tracks being very long and epic in length and acoustic guitars are added onto the closing track which is also an instrumental.
Under Threat plays a style of melodic death metal that goes back to t he 90's to 2000's era of the genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover destiny, death and life themes.
In my opinion Under Threat are a very great sounding melodic death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A.I Aftermath" "Terror management Theory" "Empire Of Ashes" and "The Existencialist". 8 out of 10.
