Arkana Code are a band from Russia that plays a traditional form of death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Brutal Conflict" which was released by Metal Scrap Records.
Clean guitars and atmospheric soundscapes start off the album and after the intro the music goes into more of a heavier and melodic musical direction and after awhile death metal growls and high pitched screams are added onto the recording along with all of the instruments sounding very powerful.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very old school fashion while also utilizing a decent amount of melody and whispers along with spoken word parts are also used at times and the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's while still retaining a very modern edge.
Arkana Code plays a style of death metal t hat is very traditional while also mixing in influences from the old school and modern era of the genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion Arkana Code are a very great sounding traditional death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Violent Human Corruption" "Tortured by My Mind" "The Holocaust Horde" and "Astral Illusion". 8 out of 10.
