Eyexist are a band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada that plays a very symphonic, avant garde and technical form of death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "The Digital Holocaust" which was released by PRC Music.
Sci fi style synths start off the album and also gives the music a symphonic feeling and after the intro the music gets heavier while also keeping the symphonic elements and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and after awhile deep death metal growls along with high pitched screams make their presence known.
At times the music can be very progressive and avant garde and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and one track also brings in a brief use of spoken word parts and they also bring in a brief symphonic instrumental before returning back to a heavier direction on the following tracks and as the album progresses more electronic music elements are added onto the recording along with the music getting more technical.
Eyexist plays a style of death metal that is very progressive, avant garde and symphonic sounding while also mixing in some technical elements to create something very original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover science fiction themes.
In my opinion Eyexist are a very great sounding symphonic and avant garde death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Digital Holocaust" "Alone Against The Earth" "Eliminate And Eradicate" and "They Came From Within". 8/5 out of 10.
