Drowned are a band from Brazil that has had one of their previous releases reviewed in this zine with a musical style that mixes thrash and death metal together and this is a review of their live 2008 album "Butchery Age Live" which was released by Congumelo Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown into the music at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with riffs that dominate throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine thrash and death metal together with a great amount of melody being thrown into the riffing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding guitar solos and leads that combine traditional, thrash and death metal together.
Vocals range from death/thrash style grunting and deep death metal growls, while the lyrics cover darkness, anti religion, violence and everyday themes, as for the production on this recording it was recorded live and it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion this is another great recording from Drowned and if you are a fan of death/thrash metal, you should check this band out. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "When To Kill Is A Worthy Job" "Natural Born Killers" "Spiritual Force To Kill" and "Evil Darkness Inside". RECOMMENDED BUY.
