No Raza are a band from Columbia that plays a brutal form of death metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "When Chaos Begins" which was released by Sliptrick Records.
Nature and human sounds start off the album before going into more of a heavy and brutal death metal direction that also uses a good amount of melody and growling vocals and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and the band also mixes in a lot of mid 90's North American influences.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they add even more of a traditional death metal sound to the bands musical style while still being very melodic at the same time and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and some songs also bring in a small amount of clean playing and acoustic guitars which also gives the music more of a tribal feeling.and as the album progresses high pitched screams can be heard in some of the songs while one track also brings in a brief use of spoken word parts.
No Raza plays a style of death metal t ha t is very heavy, aggressive and brutal while also mixing in a touch of tribal music on some songs which also makes the album stand out a bit more, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Spanish and cover anti racism, social discrimination and violence themes.
In my opinion No Raza are a very great sounding brutal death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tempos Malditos" "Evil's Seed' and "Dethroned". 8 out of 10.
