Antizen are a solo project from the Czech Republic that plays a mixture of death and groove metal and this is a review of his self released 2016 ep "The Consumer".
A very heavy guitar sound starts off the ep and a few seconds later death metal growls are added onto the recording and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody and groove and some of the riffing also adds in a touch of thrash and the music also brings in a lot of 90's death and groove metal influences.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and the one of the tracks also adds in a brief use of clean guitars before returning back to a heavier direction.
Antizen plays a musical style that takes death and groove metal and mixes them together to create a sound of his own, the production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Antizen are a very great sounding mixture of death and groove metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Psychotic Overdrive" and "Night Walk". 8 out of 10.
