Battlerage are a band from Chile that plays a mixture of heavy and power metal and this is a review of their 2008 album "The Slaughter Returns" which was released by Metal On Metal Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced drumming to fast playing with no blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has 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 traditional and power metal together to create a sound of their own with a good amount of melody being thrown the riffing as well as some speed metal elements, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding traditional metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly clean singing heavy metal vocals with some back up shouts being used at times as well as some high pitched power metal screams in addition there is a brief spoken word part, while the lyrics cover fantasy and heavy metal topics, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy, epic, and professional sound to it where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Battlerage are a very great sounding hybrid of heavy and power metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "By Steel I Reign Supreme" "Grind Their Bones" "Metal Slaughter" and "Blessed By The Axe". RECOMMENDED BUY.
