This is a review of a split album between El Salvador's Conceived By hate and Columbia's Akheron called "Coalition Of Death" which will be release d in March by Morbid Skull Records and we will start off the review with Conceived By Hate a band that plays an old school mixture of death and thrash metal.
A very heavy, raw and old school thrash metal sound starts off their side of the split along with small doses of melody and a few seconds alter death metal growls make their presence known on the recording and when solos and leads are utilized they bring in a mid 80's death/thrash feeling to the songs they are utilized on and the songs bring in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the faster sections adding in blast beats and when atmospheric sounds and keyboards are added onto the recording they add more modern elements to what is more of an old school sound and the band closes their side with a cover of Dissections "Thorns Of Crimson Death'' which also brings in screams that are in more of a black/death direction, the production sound s very professional while the lyrics cover solitude, society, revenge and emptiness.
In my opinion Conceived By Hate are a very great sounding 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 "Devotees of Death" and "Thorns Of Crimson Death".
Next up is Akheron a band that plays an old school form of thrash metal.
Their side of the split starts off with a very old school thrash metal that is very heavily rooted in the mid 80's along with some growls and screams that are in more of an early death metal direction and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and when solos and leads are utilized they remain true to an old school extreme metal sound while also adding some melodies into the bands musical style and the songs also bring in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and while the music is very old school the production makes the band sound more modern, as their side of the split a brief use of clean playing is added into one of the tracks and they close their side of the split with a cover of Misfits "Where Eagles Dare", the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover social topics, war and mental degradation.
In my opinion Akheron are a very great sounding thrash metal band with elements of old school death metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Estigma" and "In-Comformista". 8 out of 10.
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of death and thrash metal. 8 out of 10.
