Mutilator are a band from Brazil that plays a mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 1987 album "Immortal Force" which was re-issued in 2017 by in Greyhaze Records.
Distorted amp sounds start off the album before going into more of a heavier direction and the guitar leads bring in an early death metal style while the riffing is done in more of a thrash style and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and the vocals also use more of a death/thrash approach.
A decent amount of melody can be heard in the guitar riffing and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the music goes for more of a style of early death metal when it was still mostly thrash rooted while also having a touch of first wave black metal on the bonus tracks and the album also remains very heavy from beginning to ending of the recording.
Mutilator played a musical style that was considered death metal for its time while still being very heavily rooted in thrash and where also a lot lesser known than a country of other bands from their home country while still influencing t he Brazilian scene, t he production sounds very raw while the lyrics cover violence, hate and dark spirituality themes.
In my opinion Mutilator where 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 "Memorial Stone Without A Name" "War Dogs" "Immortal Force" and "Evil Conspiracy'. 8 out of 10.
