Skelethal are a band from France that has been featured before in this zine and plays an old school form of death metal and this is a review of t heir 2014 ep "Deathmanicvs Revelation" which was released by Caligari Records.
Dark and evil sounds start off the ep along with some keyboards which bring a horror music feeling to the recording and after the intro the music goes into a fast and raw old school death metal sound along with a mixture of leads and riffs which also lead up to some deep growling vocals and in the slower sections you can hear a decent amount of melody being utilized.
In the other songs blast beats are added into certain sections of the recording and the music starts going for the more darker and raw style of early 90's death metal and they bring in the heaviest elements of the Florida and Sweden scenes of the mid 80's to early 90's and ignore all modern trends of death metal and on the last track synths make a return to the music and bring an epic sound to the recording while the music remains in a heavier direction.
Skelethal remain true to an old school death metal sound, remaining in the same direction they played on the split, along with a heavy and old school production and lyrics that cover death, darkness, horror and gore themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Skelethal and if you are a fan of old school death metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Putrefacation" and "Curse Of the Neverending". 8 out of 10.
