Pikodeath are a band from the Czech Republic that plays a brutal mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Tief In Dur" which was released by Defense Records.
Horror movie style sounds start off the album before going into a very fast and raw direction that combines death and thrash metal together along with some growls and the music also incorporates a great amount of blast beats and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the songs also using a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
While the music is very heavily rooted in the old school tradition you can hear quite a band of modern death metal element s in some of the growls and at times the guitar riffs can be very melodic and they manage and as the album progresses the music starts adding in more touches of groove which also makes the music sound very catchy without losing any of the brutality.
Pikodeath are another band that plays an old school style of death and thrash metal while also having more of a modern feeling than most bands of the genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion Pikodeath are a very great sounding brutal 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 "My Four Walls" "I Am How You Like" "Child Devourer" and "Coma". 8 out of 10.
