And. P. are a band from Russia that plays a mixture of hardcore and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Being Above" which was released by Symbol Of Domination Productions.
A very heavy thrash metal sound starts off the album along with all of t he musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and the riffs also mix in a great amount of hardcore elements which also takes the music into more of a crossover style while also bringing a modern twist to the genre.
Some of the riffs use a decent amount of melody while the vocals are done in a very aggressive hardcore style and blast beats can also be heard in some of the faster sections of the songs and the music also brings in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and most of the tracks are very short in length and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they remain true to an old school style of thrash metal while also using a small amount of melody, when tremolo picking is utilized it brings an influence of black metal onto the recording along with the energy of punk rock and clean playing is added onto the last track.
And. P plays a musical style that takes the old school styles of hardcore and thrash metal and mixes it together with a more modern sound to update the genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Russian and cover angry themes.
In my opinion And. P are a very great sounding mixture of hardcore and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "After Us" "Do Not Put off Until Tomorrow" and "Being A Sheep - Also A Choice". 8 out of 10.
