Reapers Riddle are a band from Australia that plays a mixture of metal and hard rock and this is a review of their 2014 ep "Game over" which was released by Firestarter Records.
The ep starts out with an intro which uses some 80's style synths and after the intro acoustic guitars and melodic vocals start to kick in before going into a more heavy metal direction along with some melody in the guitars while also keeping around the acoustics and after awhile solos are added into the music.
As the ep continues the band bring in a mixture of clean and heavy parts along with some alternative influences being mixed in with hard rock and metal and while this has a mainstream sound you can still also hear a bit of darkness in their music and on a couple of the songs they bring in a small amount of aggressive vocals.
With this ep Reapers Riddle take traditional metal and hard rock and mix in some alternative and nu metal elements to create a recording that is very dark and heavy while also being mainstream and melodic enough to be played on the radio.
Song lyrics cover dark and everyday themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound along with the bass guitars being mixed down low in the mix.
In m y opinion Reapers Riddle are a very great sounding mixture of metal and modern day hard rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "If i Died Tomorrow" and "Fade To Grey". 8 out of 10.
