This is a review of a split album between Germany's Debauchery a death'n'roll band and their hard rock/heavy metal project Blood God called "Thunderbeast" which was released by Massacre Records.
A very heavy sound along with death metal growls start off the album while the riffs are more closer to speed metal and the solos and leads also bring in more of an old school metal style and the songs also bring in a great amount of back up gang shouts and while t he music is rooted in the 80's the vocals make it sound more modern.
A decent amount of melody can be heard in the guitar riffing while high pitched screams can also be heard at times and some songs also bring in elements of 70's rock and on the other side of the album the music starts going into a more traditional metal hard rock style with the vocals becoming more like a mixture of Brian Johnson and Udo Dirkscheider while still also utilizing a great amount of back up gang shouts and they also re-do a lot of songs from the first half of the recording with the hard rock vocal approach while death metal growls do make a return on later tracks and all of the songs stick a mid paced yet heavy musical direction.
Debauchery and Blood God team up to create an album that takes the death'n'roll style and mixes it with a 70's hard rock/metal style to create an album t hat is very original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover heavy metal, violence, vampires, women and anti religion themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from both Debauchery and Blood god and if you are a fan of traditional, death metal and hard rock, you should check out this split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Heavy Metal Monsternaut" "Vampire Holocaust" "Second Hand Woman" and "Super hot Vampire Lady". 8 out of 10.
