Thanatic Eyes are a band from France that plays a melodic form of thrash/groove metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "The Suffering Mechanisms" which was released by Thanotos Productions.
A very melodic and heavy sound starts off the album before adding in aggressive screams and a few seconds alter melodic solos and leads become a part of the music along with a great amount of thrash and hardcore influences and a slight doom metal element in the slower sections of the guitar riffing while the main ingredient is groove metal.
Clean singing is added into certain sections of the recording along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and they also add in a good amount of dark sounding melodies in their heavy sound along with some blast beats being utilized at times and on some of the later tracks acoustic guitars and symphonic sounds are brought in briefly before returning back to a heavier direction.
The music utilizes a mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some of the alter tracks having more back up shouts as well as the more aggressive screams having a slight death metal feeling to them at times while the music cannot be categorized anywhere close to that genre and some of the melodies have a mainstream rock feeling to them at times.
Thanatic Eyes plays a very modern mixture of thrash and groove metal while being a little bit more heavier and darker than most bands of this genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and hateful themes.
In my opinion Thanatic Eyes are a very great sounding mixture of thrash and groove metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Guilty" "Dark Santa Klaus" "Independent" and ...Before you Die". 8 out of 10.
