Lehmann are a band from Italy that plays a mixture of heavy, progressive, thrash and groove metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Lehmanized" which was released by Massacre Records.
Electronic music sounds start off the album along with some heavy guitars a few seconds later which leads up to an atmospheric groove metal sound along with some melodic vocals and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and after awhile spoken word parts are added into certain sections of the recording and the music also starts utilizing a great amount of melody.
On the later tracks elements of progressive rock and thrash metal become a part of the bands musical style along with a small amount of blast beats and the guitar solos and leads the bands use are in the traditional metal vein and the music also utilizes elements of power metal in the vocals at times and they also bring a hard rock approach to metal in their musical sound at times.
As the album progresses there is a great mixture of both clean and heavy parts and some of the later songs show a more symphonic metal direction to them and there is a great amount of diversity throughout the album and all of the songs sound different from each other while you can still tell it is the same band playing all of them.
Lehmann creates a very original and diverse sound with their music combining heavy, thrash, groove and progressive metal together along with a great amount of symphonic and electronic music to make the album sound very diverse, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion Lehmann are a very great sounding mixture of heavy, progressive, symphonic, thrash and groove metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Secret" "Let Me Pray" and "Laid So Low". 8 out of 10.
