Lifeless are a band from Germany that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style that I would describe as being old school death metal in the Swedish tradition and this is a review of their 2013 album "Godconstruct" which was released by FDA Rekotz.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times as well as a brief use of tribal drums, while the synths which are only used briefly bring a very dark sound to the music without being a lead instrument, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast Swedish death metal style that are very heavy and old school sounding with some melody being thrown into the riffing at times, while the lead guitars are very dark and melodic sounding death metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars they are only used briefly and use finger picking and full chords to add some darkness to the music.
Vocals are mostly deep sounding death metal growls with some Gregorian and ethnic chanting being used on the intro as well as a brief use of spoken word parts, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.
In my opinion this another great sounding album from Lifeless and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Godconstruct" "Moribund" "Blood For The Gods" and "Sworn To Death". RECOMMENDED BUY.
