Manhattan Lovestory are a band from Germany that plays a very modern form of death metal and this is a review of their self released and self titled 2017 album.
A very heavy and brutal sound starts off the album along with some deep death metal growls while the riffs also bring in a decent amount of dark sounding melodies as well as having more of a modern approach to the genre and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard.
A decent amount of breakdowns can also be heard in the mid tempo sections of the songs while spoken word parts can also be heard briefly along with all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them and one of the songs also adds in a brief use of acoustic guitars and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as some tracks also bringing in a small amount of high pitched screams and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic fashion.
Manhattan Lovestory plays a style of death metal that is very brutal and modern sounding, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover apocalyptic themes.
In my opinion Manhattan Lovestory are a very great sounding modern and brutal death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Manna Hata" "False Existence" and "The Manhattan Project". 8 out of 10.
