Near Death Condition are a band from Switzerland that plays a very brutal and technical form of death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Evolving Towards Extinction" which was released by Unique Leader Records.
The album starts out with a very fast, heavy and brutal sound along with growls, screams and blast beats a few seconds later and after awhile the band brings in slow and mid paced sections along with solos and leads while also keeping around the faster parts.
When the album goes into other songs the music mostly focuses on a fast brutal death metal sound while also adding in more technical parts along with a good amount of slow and mid paced sections and they also bring in some old school Florida influences in the guitar leads and at times atmospheric elements and melody are added into the music and on one of the tracks there are some Gregorian chants being utilized for a few seconds, when we get to the end of the album there is a brief use of avant garde soundign piano parts beign utilized.
With this album Near Death Condition play a very modern form of brutal death metal which brings in a mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while also being very technical with the musical instruments and while it is not nothing that has never been attempted before, it is still very good quality sounding death metal.
Song lyrics cover dark, violent and philosophical themes, while the production h as a very strong, powerful, heavy, brutal and professional sound along with the bass guitars being mixed down low in the mix and the last track is very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Near Death Condition are a very great sounding brutal, technical death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Words Of Wisdom" "Pandemic Of Ignorance" "Evolving Towards Extinction" and "Nostalgia For Chaos". 8 out of 10.
