Killing For Company are a band from Norway that plays an old school form of death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "House Of Hades" which will be released on April 30th by Via Nocturna.
A very heavy yet melodic sound starts off the album along with some solos and leads that also use a great amount of melody and after awhile death metal growls start making their presence known on the recording and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and the vocals also use screams.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while keyboards are also added on some of the tracks and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and one songs brings in a brief use of violins and some songs also bring in a brief use of clean playing.
Killing For Company plays a style of death metal that owes a lot to the 90's Swedish style but bring in a different approach by adding in keyboards which also makes the music stand out a bit more, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover religion, war, torture, death, fictional and non fictional themes.
In my opinion Killing For Company are a very great sounding atmospheric death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "God Of Malice""Frontal Assault" "House Of hades" and "Marching In Step With Death". 8 out of 10.
