Braindamage are a band from Italy that plays a progressive form of thrash metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "The Downfall" which was released by My Kingdom Music.
A very heavy prog metal sound starts off the album along with some melodic riffing and after a few seconds aggressive vocals are added onto the recording and you can also hear a touch of post metal in the bands musical style and clean singing can also be heard in some sections of the songs along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and the music also brings in more of a modern style of thrash metal while the faster sections of the songs bring in a decent amount of blast beats and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.and as the album progresses clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and the last track is very long and epic in length.
Braindamage plays a style of thrash metal that is very heavy and aggressive while also being very modern and progressive at the same time, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover literature and militarism themes.
In my opinion Braindamage are a very great sounding progressive/post thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "god Granted Your Prayers Through Nuclear Warheads" "Subhuman's Towns Merciless Obliteration" "Last Of The Kings, First Of The Slaves" and "You Nailed My Soul I Burned Your Flesh". 8 out of 10.
