Ferium are a band from Israel that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of death, groove metal and metalcore and this is a review of their self released 2016 album "Behind The Black Eyes".
Clean yet distorted playing starts off the album before going into a heavier direction and all of the musical instruments sound very powerful and thy also add in metalcore style aggressive vocals and death metal growls and you can also hear some melodies being mixed in with the guitar riffing and they alos add in more of a modern groove metal style at times.
When guitar leads are added into the music they give the songs more of a technical edge and when the music speeds up a small amount of blast beats can be heard and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and clean playing also makes a return in certain sections of the recording along with one of the tracks being all instrumental while a couple of songs also bring in a brief use of spoken word parts before returning back to a heavier musical direction and the last track is very long and epic in length.
Ferium creates another recording that takes groove and metalcore and mixes it in with the heaviness of death metal while also being very modern at the same time, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics are a concept album based upon personal relationships.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Ferium and if you are a fan of death, groove metal and metalcore, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Power Is All That Matters" "Losing The Grip" and "A Free Man". 7/5 out of 10.
