Formis are a band from Poland that plays a mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Mental Survival" which was released by Defense Records.
Dark sound effects start off the album and after the intro the music starts going for more of an old school thrash sound mixed in with death metal guitars as well as a decent amount of melody and all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and when solos and leads are utilized they are in a very melodic direction.
Some of the tracks bring in a small amount of clean playing and the vocals also throw in high pitched screams at times and some of the songs also bring in whispers and as the album progresses the music start incorporating more blast beats that make the music sound more brutal and all of the songs sound like they could of easily been recorded and released between 88-92.
Formis plays a style of death/thrash that is very heavily rooted in the early days of the genre and they bring out a great amount of energy and aggression with their musical style, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Formis 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 "D.I.D" "Mental Survival" and "Skeleton Key". 8 out of 10.
