Dischordia are a band from Oklahoma that has been featured before in this zine and plays a progressive and technical form of death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Thanatopsis" which was released by Rogue Records America.
Nature sounds start off the album along with some bass guitar leads a few seconds later and acoustic guitars and after awhile the music starts going into more of a heavier direction as well as introducing death metal growls and screams onto the recording and they also mix in a great amount of technical elements.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and the growls also get very guttural at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts and folk instruments and a great amount of prog elements can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording.
As the album progresses some songs also add in a touch of groove metal and melodic guitar leads on a few songs and are used more on some of the later tracks are also very long and epic in length and one track also brings in a small amount of piano's before making a return back to a heavier musical direction.
Dischordia creates another recording that remains true to the progressive and technical style of death metal from previous recordings while also adding in more heaviness and diversity this time around, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes along with the first 3 tracks having a concept to them.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Dischordia and if you are a fan of progressive and technical death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The River" "The Curator" "Bone Hive" and "The Traveler". 8 out of 10.
