Deathblow are a band from Salt lake City, Utah that plays a very fast and aggressive form of thrash metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 ep "The Other Side Of Darkness" which will be released in April.
A very heavy and aggressive thrash metal sound starts off the ep and also adds in melody at times along with a great amount of blast beats and aggressive vocals and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the screams have almost a death metal feeling to them at times.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and while the musical style is very heavily rooted in the 80's the production gives the songs more of a modern day feeling and the solos and leads that band uses also remain true to an old school thrash metal sound and the whole ep also remains heavy from beginning to end of the recording.
Deathblow plays a style of thrash that is very heavy, aggressive and brutal sounding while also using melodies at times, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover war, humanity and eugenics.
In my opinion Deathblow are a very great sounding fast and aggressive thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Means To An End" and "Death Wish". 8 out of 10.
