Area are a band from Poland that plays a very brutal and old school form of death metal and this is a review of their self released 2016 demo "Obsolete Flesh Pt. I'.
Dark soundscapes and spoken word samples start off the demo and after a few seconds the music goes into more of a brutal and old school death metal direction along with some growling vocals and the music is very heavily rooted in the 90s and high pitched screams can also be heard at times.
When solos and leads are utilized they remain true to an old school death metal style and elements of thrash can also be heard in the music at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the faster sections of the songs bring in a great amount of blast beats and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and spoken word samples along with electronic sounds also return briefly while the main focus remains on a heavier style.
Area plays a style of death metal that is rooted in the more brutal side of the early 90's genre along with a touch of thrash,, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover gore themes.
In my opinion Area are a very great sounding old school death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Subject" and "Radioactive Sun". 8 out of 10.
