After Oblivion/Stamina/Metal On Metal Records/2012 CD Review


  After  Oblivion  are  a  band  from  Bosnia  that  plays  a  very  old  shool  form  of  technical  death  metal  with  thrash  influences  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2012  album  "Stamina"  which  was  released  by  Metal  On  Metal  Records.

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  blast  beats  being  utilized  at  times,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  strong  and  powerful  sound  with  heavy  riffing that  dominates  throughout  the  recording.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  riffs  that  combine  early  90's  technical  death  metal  with  thrash  metal  as  well  as  throwing  in  a  good  amount  of  melody  in  the  riffing  as  well  as  a  brief  use  of  clean  playing,  while  the  lead  guitars  are  very  melodic  and  technical  sounding  old  school  death  metal  guitar  solos  and  leads,  as  for  the  classical  guitars  they  are  only  utilized  briefly  and  they  use  finger  picking  to  add  more  variety  to   the  music.

  Vocals  are  all  high  pitched  death/thrash  screams  and  growls,  while the  lyrics  cover  philosophical,  hateful,  and  everyday  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  strong,  powerful,  heavy,  professional  and  old  school sound  where  you  can  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  this  recording.

  In  my  opinion  After  Oblivion  are  a  very  great  sounding  hybrid  of  old  school  technical  death  metal  and  thrash  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  style,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Deliverance"  "Vultures"  "Septic  Mind"  and  "Hatred  Peofound".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
