Heretic Soul are a band from Turkey that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style I would describe as being a heavy, brutal and old school form of death metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "The Nihilistic Attitude" which was released by PRC Music.
"Nihilistic Attitude" begins with some heavy and dark guitar riffs along with some drums and then the song goes into a more heavy and brutal direction as w ell as mixing in some blast beats, death metal growls and high pitched screams and after a couple of minutes melodic guitar riffing is added into the song as well as some guitar solos and leads towards the end.
"Cancer Of Society" begins with some heavy death metal guitar riffs and drums as well as a small amount of blast beats before the music slows down and adds in some growls, screams and melodic riffing while also remaining heavy at the same time.
"Release Your Ego' begins with some guitar and bass riffs as well as some drums and then the song starts getting heavier and adding in some growls and growls which are also mixed in with small amounts of fast riffing before slowing down for a second and adding in a spoken word part and as the song moves on it also starts mixing in a variety of many different riffs and towards the end there is a brief use of guitar solos and leads.
"Corrupted Human Race" begins with some guitar riffs that start getting heavy after a few seconds along with some drums and then the song goes into a faster direction and adds in some blast beats and growls before heading into a mid paced direction and also mixing in some screams and a few minutes later there is a brief use of spoken parts before the music adds in some melodic riffing.
"Life Is Torture" begins with some guitar riffs and drums which then lead to some growls and screams and then the song gets fast in some sections while also adding in a small amount of blast beats and in some parts there are some melodic riffs being utilized as well as a brief use of clean parts towards the end.
"Liars Not Allowed'' begins with some melodic guitar leads before blast beats, heavy guitar riff, growls and screams start kicking in and the song sticks mostly to a mid paced direction and you can hear the bass guitars in certain sections and then the song starts switching back and forth between mid paced and fast and towards the end the guitar leads make a return.
"Stereotype" begins with a high pitched scream before adding in some blast beats and growls as well as speeding up in certain sections of the song and towards the end there is a brief use of guitar solos and leads being utilized.
"Sarcastic Smile" begins with some heavy guitar riffs and drums along with some melody being utilized and then the song speeds up adds in some powerful bass guitars, blast beats, deep growls and high pitched screams and then the song starts switching back and forth between mid paced and fast parts and after awhile the guitar riffing starts utilizing some melody.
"Suicidal State of Mind" begins with some clean guitars and a minute later heavy guitar riffs and drums start kicking in which then leads to some melodic riffing and high pitched screams and towards the end there are some clean sections being brought into the song.
Song lyrics cover nihilism, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Heretic Soul and if you are a fan of Polish style death metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Nihilistic Attitude" "Corrupted Human Race" "Liars Not Allowed" and "Suicidal State of Mind". RECOMMENDED BUY.
