Macabra are an international duo with one member from the united States and another one from Belgium and they play a very underground and old school form of death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "To The Bone" which will be released in July as a joint effort between Morbid Visions Music and Vonfrost Records.
A melodic guitar lead starts off the album and they are a very huge part off the recording before adding in atmospheric synths, heavy riffs and death metal growls and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of morbid sounding melodies and when the music speeds up a great amount of morbid sounding melodies can be heard.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and high pitched screams are also added into certain sections of the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the guitar leads remain true to an old school style of death metal ad the music is very heavily rooted in the early 90's and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and there is also a brief use of acoustic guitars before returning back to a heavier direction.
Macabra plays a style of death metal that goes for the more underrated atmospheric sound of the early 90's which also did not get much exposure in that time period, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover nature and insanity themes.
In my opinion Macabra 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 "Sadocrat" "Royalties On Murder" and "Scars of Dignity". 8 out of 10.
