Defcon One are a band from the Netherlands that plays a progressive mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "The Perfection Of Slavery" which was released by RVP Records.
A very dark drone starts off the album before the music starts going into a more heavy death metal direction along with some growling vocals, high pitched screams and blast beats and when solos and leads are utilized they are in a very melodic, progressive and technical musical direction and you can also hear some atmospheric elements in the background at times.
You can hear a lot of thrash elements in the bands musical style and the songs also bring in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and there are also a few tracks that are instrumental and the synths also bring in elements of dark ambient which also gives the music more of a ritualistic feeling. and at times they are a small amount of spoken word samples being utilized.
Deafcon One plays a style of death metal that is very atmospheric and progressive while also being very heavy at the same time and also incorporating elements of thrash, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism, Philosophical and Historical themes.
In my opinion Deafcon One are a very great sounding atmospheric and progressive 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 "Son Of God, Daughters Of Men" "Subconscious Seven" and "History Is Written By the Victor". 8 out of 10.
