Roadkill XIII are a band from Germany that plays a mixture of death, thrash and groove metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Triskaidekaphobia" which was released as a joint effort between Satanath Records and Rebirth The Metal Productions.
Dark sound effects start off the album before going into more of a heavy thrash metal direction and once the screams and death metal growls are added into the music a great amount of blast beats can be heard in the faster sections of the music and the music also mixes in a lot of mid 80's and early 90's influences.
When solos and leads are added into the music they remain very true to an extreme death/thrash metal direction and spoken word along with movie samples can be heard in the music at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and as the album progresses the music starts incorporating more old school groove metal elements and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and one of the tracks is very long and epic in length.
Roadkill XIII plays a musical style that takes death, thrash and groove metal and mixes them together to create a style of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover hate, anger, social criticism and horror themes.
In my opinion Roadkill XIII are a very great sounding mixture of death,thrash and groove metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hunt And Kill" "No Salvation" and "Inferno". 8 out of 10.
