Valgrind are a band from Italy that plays a very old school form of brutal death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Speech Of The Flame" which was released by lord Of The Flies Records.
Dark sounding synths start off the album and they also use a variety of many different sounding keys before going into more of a heavy Florida influenced death metal direction that also utilizes technical sounding guitar solos and leads and after awhile blast beats and death metal growls start to make their presence known on the recording.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while some of the riffing also brings in a small amount of melody and the music also brings in a great amount of brutality and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the fast riffing also uses a great amount of tremolo picking while some songs also bring in a small amount of screams and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts and the whole album also remains very brutal from beginning to ending of the recording.
Valgrind plays a style of death metal that has its roots in the 90's while also having a great amount of modern brutality to them, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover history, cataclysms and war themes.
In my opinion Valgrind are a very great sounding brutal death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tyrants" "Into The Realm Of Gray Light" "Ring Of The Omega" and "Echoes Of the Titan". 8 out of 10.
