Assorted Heap where a band from the Netherlands that played a technical mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 1991 album "The Experience Of Horror" which was re-issued in 2016 by Vic Records.
A very hard and heavy sound starts off the album along with some melodic riffing a few seconds later which also leads up to more of a thrash metal style that also uses a great amount of blast beats and early death metal screams while the vocals also lean more towards to the aggressive side of thrash.
The music sound s very technical for the era it was released and back up gang shouts can also be heard at times and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording and the guitar solos and leads also bring in even more of an early death/thrash metal style while growls can also be heard in some parts of the songs and some tracks also bring in a small amount of clean playing, classical guitars and atmospheric sounds and throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and they close with a rockabilly style outro.
Assorted Heap played a style of death metal on this recording that was still heavily rooted in thrash while also being very technical for its era, the production has a very raw yet heavy sound while the lyrics cover drugs, rape and crime themes.
In my opinion this was a very great sounding recording from Assorted Heap and if you are a fan of early technical death/thrash metal, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Experience Of Horror" "Sold Out Souls" and "Grave New World". 8 out of 10.
