Morti Viventi are a 1 man band from the united Kingdom that plays an old school form of thrash metal and this is a review of his 2014 album "The Day The Dead Returned" which was released by UKEM Records.
A very heavy and melodic thrash metal sound starts off the album along with some blast beats and after a few seconds aggressive vocals are added into the music and they also have a melodic tone to them at times and the music also brings in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some back up gang shouts being added into certain sections of the recording.
When solos and leads are added into the music they remain true to the old school thrash metal sound of the recording while also adding in some technical elements at times as well as utilizing a great amount of talent and skill and some of the songs also bring in samples from horror movies and there are also some tracks that are very long and epic in length along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and there is also an instrumental song that also brings in a small amount of clean playing before the last track which also shows vocals making a return to the music.
Morti Viventi plays a very aggressive and melodic style of thrash metal that is heavily rooted in the 80's style but done with a more updated take on the genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark topics and horror move themes.
In my opinion Morti Viventi are a very great sounding thrash metal project and if you a re a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hell On Earth" "Spawn Of Another Kind" and "Thrash or Die". 8 out of 10.
