Chainfist are a band from Denmark that plays a mixture of hard rock, thrash and heavy metalmetal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Scarred" which will be released by Mighty Music.
Dark sounding clean guitars start off the album before adding in a brief spoken word part which leads up to a heavier musical direction along with some melodic yet aggressive vocals and the music brings in the heaviness of groove and thrash along with a slight death metal feeling and mixes it in with a more commercial and mainstream approach to metal.
When solos and leads are added into the music they enhance the melodic elements of the bands musical style and the spoken word parts also return in certain sections of the recording and the spoken word parts also return in certain sections of the recording and after awhile the band starts to add more clean playing to some of the songs as well as bringing in a couple of power ballads while the main focus remains on a hard and heavy sound.
You can hear a great amount of variety in the bands musical style while the main inspiration is metal you can hear a bit of alternative, hardcore, nu metal and hard rock in the bands musical sound as well as the combining old school styles of metal with the more modern style of the genre and they add in a great amount of heaviness to their melodic sound.
Chainfist brings in a great amount of variety with their musical sound combining many different styles of metal together ranging from the extreme, melodic and mainstream variations of the genre to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover political and real life themes.
In my opinion Chainfist are a very great sounding mixture of thrash, hard rock and heavy metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Scars Of Time" "Another Day in Hell" "Know Your Fate" and "Mass Frustration". 8 out of 10.
