Skelator are a band from Seattle, Washington are a b and from Seattle, Washington that plays a mixture of power, speed and traditional metal with some thrash elements and this is a review of their 2012 album "Agents Of Power" 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 strong and power sound with heavy riffing t hat dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine power, traditional and speed metal together to create a sound of t heir own as well as a good amount of thrash influences and melody being thrown into the riffing, while the lead guitars are very old school and melodic sounding power/speed/heavy metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars which are only used briefly they use finger picking and full chords to add more epic elements to the music.
Vocals are mostly clean singing power/heavy metal vocals with some back up shouts and spoken word parts, while the lyrics cover Fantasy and Dark themes, as for the production it h as a very powerful, heavy, old school and professional sound to it where you can hear all of t he musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Skelator are a very great sounding hybrid of speed, power, and traditional metal with some thrash elements and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band.
