Derelict/Unspoken Words/2009 CD Review

Derelict are a band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada that has their previous e.p reviewed in this zine and play a style that i would describe as being a technical and progressive form of death metal with a thrash edge and this is a review of their self released 2009 album "Unspoken Words".

Drums range from midpaced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown in at times and on the last song there are some mechnical sounding drums, while the bass playing has a very heavy tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars which does not sound as strong as they do on the new e.p but they do have a very powerful sound at times, as for the keyboards when they are used briefly they bring a haunting and medievel sound to the music with some piano being used on the least song.

Rhythm guitars range from midpaced to fast fast technical death metal riffs that are very progressive sounding with a great amount of thrash influences and melodies and this album is bit more primitive than the newer release, while the lead guitars are very technical sounding death metal guitar solos mixed in with alot of progressive elements and melody, as the classical guitars when they are used on a cuople of songs that bring a war like feel to the music while retainind the progressive elements.

Vocals are mostly high pitched death metal screams with some deep growls being thrown in at times, while the lyrics cover war, anti-religion, human studity, and injustice, as for the production it has a very heavy and professional sound to it.

In my opinion this was a great album from Derelict and if you are a hadn of technical/progressive death metal, you should check this album out. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Summoning The Firestorm" "Xenocide" "The Blood Of Life" and "Never Reborn". RECEMMONDED BUY
