Rabid Flesh Eaters are a band from Texas that plays a mixture of thrash and speed metal with a touch of death metal and this is a review of their self released 2016 album "Reign Of Terror" which will be released on April 15th.
Night sounds start off the album along with the sounds of werewolves which also leads up to a heavier musical direction along with some old school metal style guitar leads and after a few seconds aggressive almost spoken vocals are added onto the recording along with some screams that bring in a touch of death metal.
Most of the music is very heavily rooted in the more aggressive 80's style of thrash and at times the vocals use a small amount of melodic singing and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while some of the faster sections of the songs also bring in a small amount of blast beats.
At times the riffs also have their melodic moments and throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and as the album progresses elements of punk are also added into some of the tracks and a couple of the songs are very long and epic in length and the whole album also remains heavy from beginning to ending of the recording.
Rabid Flesh eaters plays a musical style that takes the most heaviest elements of thrash and speed metal and mixes them together along with some of the early 80's death metal sound to create a very old school yet aggressive recording, the production sounds very professional for t he album being self released while the lyrics cover lycanthropy, sociatel decline, the psycology of terrorists, serial killers and imminent doom.
In my opinion Rabid Flesh Eaters are a very great sounding mixture of thrash and speed metal with a touch of death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Lycanthrope" "Psychotic Episode" "Morbid beast" and "Reign Of Terror". 8/5 out of 10.
