Dystonia are a band from Russia that plays a mixture of death metal and modern thrash and this is a review of their self released 2016 album "World Wide War".
A very heavy yet melodic sound starts off the album along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful and after awhile aggressive screams are added onto the recording while they also have their melodic moments along with a some death metal growls being utilized at times and blast beats can also be heard in the faster sections of the songs.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of both modern and old school thrash metal elements while the solos and leads are done in more of a melodic fashion and there are also some back up gang shouts being utilized at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and one track also brings in a brief use of war samples while some songs also bring in a small amount of bass guitar leads and pianos are added onto the last track.
Dystonia plays a musical style that takes the modern and old school styles of thrash metal and mixes them with death metal to create a style of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover war and genocide themes.
In my opinion Dystonia are a very great sounding mixture of death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "No Chance To Return" "We Are All Condemned" and "Eternal Nuclear Winter". 8 out of 10.
