Revel In Flesh 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 Swedish style death metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Manifested Darkness" which was released by FDA Rekotz.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some brutal sounding blast beats being utilized at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars, as for the keyboards they are only used briefly on one song and bring a very dark feeling to the music.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast Swedish death metal riffs that are very old school, raw and primitive 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 to add some dark elements to the recording.
Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls with some high pitched screams being thrown into t he music at times, while the lyrics cover darkness and gore themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Revel In Flesh and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Revel In Flesh" "Manifested Darkness" "The Maggot Colony" and "Twisted Mass Of Burnt Decay". RECOMMENDED BUY.
