Manu Armanta are a band from the Netherlands that plays a very heavy and brutal form of hardcore and this is a review of their 2014 album "Surpass the master" which will be released in September by Beatdown Hardwear Records.
A very distorted sound along with spoken word parts start off the album before the music goes into more of a brutal hardcore musical direction along with some fast riffs, blast beats and aggressive vocals as well as some back up gang shouts and the band also brings in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
You can hear a lot of east coast influence in the bands musical style and the band avoids using any solos and leads as well as keeping all of the songs short in length and the third and fourth track are all silence while the band returns back to a more brutal musical direction on the following tracks as well as adding in the heaviness of extreme metal as well as bringing back spoken word samples in certain sections of the recording.
Manu Armats plays a very heavy and brutal style that goes back to the genres glory days of the 90's, the production sound s very professional while the lyrics cover violent, hateful and political themes.
In my opinion Manu Armata are a very great sounding brutal hardcore band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Self Reliant" "Torn" and "Loyal To The Grave". 8 out of 10.
