This is a review of a split album between Costa Rica's Assailant and Ubiquitous Realities called "Bringers Of Delusion" which was released as a joint effort between Symbol Of Domination Productions and Cavan Records and we will start off the review with Assailant which plays an old school form of thrash metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a very melodic and old school bay Area style guitar lead and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and when vocals are added into the music they are very aggressive thrash style screams that are more in tune with the heavier side of the genre.
Clean playing can be heard in some parts of the songs and the music also brings in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and you can also hear a touch of early death metal at times and there is also a brief use of blast beats along with the music also mixing in technical elements, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover social issues.
In my opinion Assailant are a very great sounding old school thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Leading Spectre" and "Suspension Of Disbelief".
Next up is Ubiquitous Realities and band that plays a progressive and technical style of brutal death metal.
Their side of the split starts out with spoken word samples before going into a very fast and brutal technical death metal direction along with some blast beats and growling vocals and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and high pitched screams can also be heard at times.
Throughout their side of the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the riffs also mix in a small amount of melody and when solos and leads are added into t he music they give the songs more of a melodic and progressive death metal edge, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover philosophical themes.
In my opinion Ubiquitous Realities are a very great sounding technical and progressive brutal death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Bringers Of Malevolence" and "Alterated Perception I".
In conclusion i feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of thrash and technical death metal. 8 out of 10.
