Cemetery Dust are a band from Austria that plays a mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "To Rule Them All" which was released by Metal Music Austria.
Acoustic guitar playing starts off the album which also uses a great mixture of both finger picking and full chords and after the intro the music adds in tremolo picking and more of a heavier sound as well as adding in thrash style screaming and the riffs also use a great amount of melody along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
When solos and leads are utilized they are very melodic and also remain true to an old school metal direction and some of the tracks also bring in elements of groove metal as well as growls that are very close to the more technical days of Death's later material and some of the tracks bring in a decent amount of blast beats.
Spoken word samples can be heard in certain sections of their recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the acoustic guitars also make a return briefly on some of the tracks and the music also brings in a great mixture of both old school and modern influences.
Cemetery Dust plays a very melodic and progressive musical style that mixes the 90's genres of death and thrash metal together along with a touch of modern groove metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover war, politics, social issues and inner struggles.
In my opinion Cemetery Dust 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 "Souls Come Undone" "Cloak Of Blood" and "To Rule Them All". 8 out of 10.
