Apontokation are a band from Spain that plays a mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 album "Conquerors Beyond The Stars".
Classical guitar playing starts off the album along with all of the other m musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and a few seconds later the music starts to get a lot more heavier along with some melodies, growls and screams and when solos and leads are utilized they are very dark and melodic.
Blast beats can be heard in certain sections of the recording along with a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and spoken word samples can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of both old school death and thrash metal influences and on of the tracks also brings in a brief use of ethnic sound s before making a return back to a heavier musical direction.
Apontokation plays an old school mixture of death and thrash metal that goes back to t he 90's but also mixes in a modern sound, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion Apontokation 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 "A Wisp Of Misanthropy" "Ancient Vision" "Human Chaos" and "Absolution Through the Mayhem". 8 out of 10.
