Tendonitis are a band from Switzerland that plays a mixture of thrash and heavy metal and this is a review of their self released 2016 album "Stormreaper".
A very hard and heavy thrash metal sound starts off the album along with some melodic yet aggressive vocals a few seconds later and you can also hear a great amount of melody in both the solos and riffs and the songs also bring in a great amount of back up gang shouts and the music is very heavily rooted in the 80's style.
Elements of traditional metal can be heard in the bands musical style while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and you can also clean playing in certain sections of the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and there is also a brief use of whispers and female vocals and they also bring in a power ballad before returning back to a heavier direction on the following tracks and as the album progresses a small amount of acoustic guitars can be heard.
Tendonitis plays a style of thrash metal that goes for more of a melodic side of the genre and also mixes in elements of traditional metal to create a style of t heir own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover cruelty of live and mankind, war, loneliness and strength themes.
In my opinion Tendonitis are a very great sounding mixture of thrash and heavy metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ship Of Fools" "Ballad Of The Need" "Satan's Seven Sinners" and "Leidenschaft". 8 out of 10.
