Alterbeast are a band from Sacramento, California that plays a very heavy and brutal form of technical death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Immortal" which was released by Unique Leader.
The album starts out with a dark classical music style sound before going into a fast and brutal sound along with blast beats and a mixture of growls and screams which leads up to technical guitar solos a s well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them along with a mixture of mid paced and fast parts which also beings in a bit of melody.
The brutal and technical continues on the other songs and the music remains very heavy throughout the recording while also having a more modern extreme metal feeling that is actually done properly this time around and never takes away from the brutality this recording produces and the melody brings in a great amount of emotion to the music as well as bringing in a great amount of early 90s influences and on one of the songs they bring in some ritualistic chanting.
Alterbeast seem to have a good balance on this record, all of the musicians seem to be very skilled at their instruments and they mix in very brutal death metal along with a good amount of melody and technical elements to create a very interesting sounding record.
Song lyrics cover darkness and gore themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy, brutal and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Alterbeast are a very great sounding heavy, fast, and brutal technical death metal b and and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album> RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Flesh Bound Text" "Ancient's Retribution" and "Serpentspire". 8 out of 10.
