Toxaemia/Discography/Dark Descent Records/2010 CD Re-Issue Review

Toxaemia where a death metal band from Sweden that existed around the mid 80's and early 90's and this is a review of all of their demos and e.p's known as "Discography" which was re-issued by Dark Descent Records during the year of 2010.

Drums range from slow, midpaced to fast drumming with alot of brutal blast beats, while the bass playing has a very dark and raw tone which was a common thing for all of the classic death metal bands, as for the keyboards which are only used briefly on a couple of songs they have a classic horror movie feel to them.

Rhythm guitars alternate between slow, midpaced to fast death metal riffs that also have a very thrashy feel to them at times, while the lead guitars are morbid sounding death metal guitar solos.

Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls in the mid 80's to early 90's tradition and not as guttural or brutal like the modern day death metal vocals, while the lyrics cover violence, gore and anti christian themes, as for the production it has that raw early 90's demo feel to it.

In my opinion Toxaemia where a great band and if you are a fan of the classic mid 80's to early 90's death metal bands, you should check out this group. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Evil Rage" "Expired Christianity" "Buried To Rot" and "Crematorium". RECEMMONDED BUY.
