Saratan are a band from Poland that plays a mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "Martya Xwar" which was released by Massacre Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the folk instruments that are used on the into and a few songs bring an exotic, ethnic, and Arabic sound to the music as well as a brief use of pianos, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars ranged from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine Polish style death metal with modern day thrash metal, while the lead guitars are very chaotic sounding death/thrash metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly thrash style vocals with some death metal growls and screams as well as a brief use of clean singing female vocals, while the lyrics cover occult and anti christian themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.
In my opinion Saratan are a very great sounding hybrid of death metal and modern day thrash metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Mastema" "Silent Sun Of Mourning" and "God That Disappears". RECOMMENDED BUY.
