Benn Bilinski is a solo artist from the United States that plays an instrumental and technical form of thrash metal and this is a review of his self released 2014 album "Red valley".
A very heavy and old school thrash metal sound starts off the album and after the intro the music starts to add in more technical playing and there are no vocals or lyrics to be heard anywhere on the recording and the solos and leads also add in a great amount of talent and skill to the songs they are presented on.
At times you can hear element s of speed metal and progressive rock in some of the tracks and as the album progresses you can hear a small amount of ambient elements being added into certain sections of the recording and the songs also bring in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the last track also brings in synths and NWOBHM style guitar leads.
Benn Bilinski demonstrates a great amount of talent and skill with his musical style by keeping everything instrumental and playing a style of thrash metal that also bring s in elements of speed, technical metal, progressive rock and ambient which all results in a sound of its own and the production sounds very raw yet heavy at the same time.
In my opinion Benn Bilinski is a very great sounding instrumental technical/thrash metal artist and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Spirit Racer" "Door Of the Panther" and "Port Town". 8 out of 10.
