Surtur are a band from Bangladesh that plays a very aggressive form of thrash metal with some elements of early death metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 ep "Descendant Of Time".
Clean guitars and nature sounds start off the ep and after the intro the music starts going into more of an old school thrash metal direction t hat also uses a great amount of blast beats and melodic riffing and the music is very heavily rooted in the mid 80's while the vocals are done in a screaming fashion that is very close to Kreator style.
Throughout the recording you can hear a lot of influences from the bay Area, German and Brazilian styles of thrash metal and the solos and leads are very melodic and also remain true to a very old school style of extreme metal and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and back up gang shouts are added onto the last track.
Surtur goes back to the mid 80's style of extreme thrash metal bringing in a touch of early death metal and first wave black metal to create a style of their own which also incorporates more melody than most bands on the more extreme side of thrash, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover hate, war, surrealism and metal fantasy themes.
In my opinion Surtur are a very great sounding extreme thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Descendant of Time" and "Demolisher". 8 out of 10.
