Sophicide are a band from Germany that plays a very a very brutal and technical form of death metal with a melodic edge and this is a review of their 2012 album "Perdition Of The Sublime" which was released by Willowtip.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of brutal sounding blast beats being thrown into the music, while t he bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording, as for the synths they are only utilized on one song and bring a very symphonic sound to the music.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast brutal death metal riffs that are very technical sounding with a good amount of melody and some groove metal influences being thrown into the riffing, while the lead guitars are very technical and melodic sounding death metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilize they use exotic sounding scales to add more variety to the music.
Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls with some high pitched screams being thrown into t he music at times as well as some spoken word samples, while the lyrics cover dark, violent and hateful themes, as for the production it h as 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 Sophicide are a very great sounding brutal, technical death metal band with a melodic edge and if you are a fan of this style of music, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Art Of Atrocity' "Of Lust And Vengeance" "Freedom Of Mind" and "Dawn Of A New Age". RECOMMENDED BUY.
