Bastard Grave ate a band from Sweden that plays a very old school form of death metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "What Lies Beyond" which was released by Pulverised Records.
Guitar amp sounds start off the album along with some drum beats which leads up to a very fast old school style of Swedish death metal which also introduces blast beats and morbid sounding melodies onto the recording along with some growling vocals and the solos and leads also bring in a melodic style to the bands musical style.
Most of the music is very heavily rooted in the early 90's while the production does give the music more of a modern edge and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the whole album also remains very heavy from beginning to ending of the recording with no soft or clean parts ever being utilized.
Bastard Grave plays a style of Swedish death metal that is very old school while being more heavy, raw and aggressive than most bands of this genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover violence, death and gore themes.
In my opinion Bastard Grave are a very great sounding heavy and aggressive Swedish death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "From the Depths" "Stalker" "Reborn In Filth" and "Misery". 8 out of 10.
