Slave One are a band from France that plays a very technical and progressive form of death metal and this is a review of their 2017 ep "An Abstract and Metaphysical Approach To Deceit" which was released by Dolerem Records.
A very heavy and melodic sound starts off the ep along with some technical guitar leads being added onto the recording a few seconds later and after awhile death metal growls and blast beats start to make their presence known along with some screams also being utilized at times.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while clean playing and prog elements are also added into certain sections of the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and spoken word parts along with ethnic style instruments and acoustic guitars are also used briefly and most of their tracks are very long and epic in length and they close the ep with a cover of Dimmu Borgir's "Blessings Upon The Throne Of Tyranny" which also brings in a small amount of synths.
Slave One plays a style of death metal that is very technical and progressive sounding, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover cosmologies, obscurantism, and symbolic themes.
In my opinion Slave One are a very great sounding progressive and technical death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tunguska" and "Uroboric". 8 out of 10.
