Kalopsia-Angelplague (2017)

What I heard was a solid brutal death metal album with technical riffs and deep growled vocals. Not a breakdown infested album with “hardcore” vocals. This album has a heavy guitar sound but the riffs (yes, plural, a breakdown would only have one) are technical and interesting as well as being brutal. The best riffs on this album are in the beginnings of songs, but they are also featured throughout the songs. In fact I am confident to say that there are no bad riffs on this album. The solos here are shorter and scarcer than an usual death metal band but they are still really good and not “a jumble of random notes” and doesn’t get boring. The drumming is really consistent in this album, it keeps the songs together and of course, it’s brutal. The vocals are decent and with pitched growls and go with the music. The music is brutal you'll be moshing and headbanging to your heart's content. In the end, buy it. You probably like death metal if you came here, and therefore Kalopsia is a must, and this album is well performed.
