The Replicate are a band from the United States that plays a very technical form of death metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 ep "A Selfish Dream".
Melodic yet technical guitar riffing starts off the ep along with some blast beats and high pitched screams a few seconds later and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and the guitar leads also bring in even more of a technical style and the vocals also have somewhat of a melodic tone at times.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and avant garde sounds can also be heard briefly and some songs also mix in a progressive edge and you can also hear a great amount of talent and skill present throughout the recording and clean playing is also added into some parts of the songs and after awhile more growls are utilized and the last track is all instrumental.
The Replicate plays a style of death metal that is very technical while also having its progressive moments, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion The Replicate are a very great sounding technical death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Chainsaw Of God" and "The Saline". 8 out of 10.
