UnKured are a band from Ohio that plays a mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 album "Mutated Earth" which will be released in November.
A very old school and heavy thrash metal sound starts off the album along with a decent amount of melody and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and after awhile blast beats and death metal style growls and death/thrash style screams are added into the music along with a touch of technical playing and the band also brings in a few long and epic in length songs that demonstrate their, talent, ability and skill as musicians.
The solos and leads that the band plays are very melodic and technical in the mid 80's to early 90's meaning of the term and the band also uses a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and all of the songs sound like they could of easily been recorded and released during the years of 88 and 89 and they also bring in a perfect balance between both clean and heavy parts as well as a brief instrumental and the faster parts display more of a raw 80's style of death metal.
UnKured go back to the mid 80's style of thrash when it was starting to get more technical and progressive sounding with some of the later bands and they also combine it with the true death metal style of the mid 80's to create some very heavy and old school metal, the production sounds very old school while also being professional for being a self released recording and th e lyrics cover science fiction themes.
In my opinion UnKured are a very great sounding old school and technical mixture of death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genre,s you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Mutated Earth" "Cells" and "Twisted And Warped". 8 out of 10.
