Regicide are a band from Albuquerque, New Mexico that plays a mixture of heavy and thrash metal and this is a review of t heir self released 2015 album "Fall Of An Empire".
A very powerful bass guitar sound starts off the album along with some melodic riffing a few seconds later which also leads up to some rough vocals that are perfectly balanced between aggression and melody and the music starts going into more of an old school thrash metal direction that is rooted in the mid 80's.
Back up gang shouts can be heard at times while the solos and leads remain true to a traditional style of thrash metal and some songs also bring in a brief use of clean playing and throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and you can also hear some growls and power metal elements at times and they also bring in an instrumental track while the remaining songs have vocals.
Regicide plays a style of thrash metal t hat is very melodic yet aggressive at the same time while also adding a more modern touch to an old school style, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion Regicide are a very great sounding mixture of heavy and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Fallen" "John The Baptist" and "Again". 8 out of 10.
