Catch 22 are a band from Ohio that plays a very melodic form of power/thrash metal and this is a review of their 2008 album "Soulreaper: Evolution/Devilution" which was released by Metal On Metal Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with no blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing h as a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine thrash and power metal together to create a sound of their with a good amount of melody being thrown into the riffing, while the lead guitars are very melodic and technical sounding power/thrash metal guitar solos and leads, as for the classical guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking and full chords to add some darkness to the music.
Vocals range from clean singing power metal vocals to some more aggressive thrash shouts and vocals, while the lyrics dark, occult, violent and everyday themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Catch 22 are a very great sounding melodic power/thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Soulreaper" "Atlantis Rising" "Never" and "Season Of The Witch". RECOMMENDED BUY.
