Ecocide are a band from the Netherlands that plays a mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Eye of Wicked Sight" which was released by Disharmonic Records.
Sci fi sounding ambient synths start off the album and after the intro the music starts out in a slow death metal direction before going into a more mid paced direction and adding more thrash influences into the musical sound and then it starts to speed up and add in blast beats and growls and the music starts having a more old school death/thrash metal feeling.
After awhile the music starts utilizing a mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as incorporating more melody into their musical sound and they also add in spoken word and science fiction movie samples on some of the tracks and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and all of the tracks remain true to a mid 80's to early 90's era of death metal but with a good dose of thrash being mixed into the sound and I can hear a little bit of early Malevolent Creation and Massacre as well as a small amount of early Death in their musical sound while the band is not a copy of either band.
Ecocide go back to the mid 80's to e arly 90's era of Florida death metal with their musical sound and mixes it in with the raw energy of thrash metal to create a sound on this recording that is very old school yet very heavy all at the same time, th e production sounds very professional in and early 90's way while the lyrics cover Aliens, Science Fiction and Sumerian themes.
In my opinion Ecocide are a very great sounding old school mixture of death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Alien Intervention" "Tale From Beyond" and "Beneath the Flesh". 8 out of 10.
