Insaniter are a band from Greece that has been featured before in this zine and plays an old school form of thrash metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 ep "Half Faces".
Clean playing starts off the ep before going into a heavier direction as well as adding in a brief use of classical guitars and after awhile the bass guitars get powerful and the music starts going into more of a thrash direction along with some melodic riffs being utilized at times and the music also gets even more heavier after the intro.
Vocals bring in a very rough yet melodic sound to the songs and the music has a very vintage 80's style of thrash metal sound to it and on some of the later tracks clean playing does make a return in certain sections of the recording and when solos are utilized they remain true to and old school thrash sound and the songs also use a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the songs also bring in a vocal style briefly that seems to be influenced by death metal along with a small amount of brutal blast beats.
Insaniter remains true to the old school thrash metal style of previous recordings while also bringing in a touch of death metal to give the songs more of a harder edge, the production sounds very heavy and old school while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Insaniter and if you are a fan of old school thrash metal, you should enjoy this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Chuck Norris Final" "Gods" and "Spirit revelation". 8 out of 10.
