Deserted Fear are a band from Germany that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of both modern and old school death metal and this is a review of his 2014 album "Kingdom of Worms" which was released by FDA Rekotz.
Dark sound effects start off the album and they give the music and epic feeling and after t he intro the band starts going for more of an old school Swedish style death metal sound along with some growling style vocals that are more closer to the mid 80's to early 90's style and they also bring in a good amount of blast beats.
You can hear a good amount of melody in the bands musical style along with a good mixture of slow,, mid paced and fast parts and when solos are added into the music they add even more to the melodic side of the bands approach to death metal which also has influences from the German, Dutch and English bands of the early 90's.
While the music is mostly rooted more in the old school style of death metal it does have a more modern edge with the way the music is produced and halfway through the recording a brief instrumental acoustic piece is added onto the recording while the following tracks sees the music returning back to a heavier direction along with a good amount of the raw old school brutality and some of the later tracks also use a small amount of spoken word parts..
Deserted fear remains true to their old school approach to death metal creating an album that is very heavy and melodic sounding but with more modern technology, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover death, war and occultism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Deserted Fear and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Forging Delusions" "Wrath On Your Wound" "With Might And Main" and "Last Of A Fading Kind". 8 out of 10.
