Entrenched are a band from New Jersey that plays a very brutal form of old school death metal with a thrash edge and this is a review of their self released 2011 album "Preemptive Strike".
Drums range from slow, midpaced to fast drumming with a great amount of blast beats,while the bass playing haas a dark tone that is kind of mixed down low in the mix and seems to follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars, as for the pianos which are only utilized breifly as an intro on one song have afeel of a black and white horror film .
Rhythm guiars range from slow, midpaced to fast death metal in the early 90's vein mixed in with a great amount of thrash influences as well as sme morbid sounding melodies, while the lead guitars are very chaotic and primal sounding death metal guitar solos in the early 90's vein.
Vocals are a mixture of death metal growls and high pitched gore/grind/death high pitched screams with some sppoken word samles about the war, while the lyrics cover war themes, as for the production it has a very primal, heavy and powerful sounding production.
In my opinion Entrenched are a very good death metal band that goes back to the classic sound instead of following modern trends, and if you want to hear some classic sounding death metal with a modern touch, you should check out this band.
