Ibyss are a band from Germany that plays a very brutal form of industrial metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 ep "Hate Speech".
A very heavy guitar sound starts off the album along with some programmed drum beats while the guitar leads are done in a very melodic fashion and after awhile aggressive industrial metal style vocals make their presence known on the recording and the music also brings in influences of 90's era Earache industrial bands.
Clean playing can be hear d in the music at times and some of t he vocals also add in a touch of groove metal and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts and a touch of death metal can also be heard at times and all of the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction while also always remaining heavy while clean singing is used briefly and the last track is very long and epic in length.
Ibyss plays a style of industrial metal t hat is more closer to the 90's Earache and Roadracer bands and brings back a sound that is rarely heard these days, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover violent, hateful and angry themes.
In my opinion Ibyss are a very great sounding old school and brutal industrial metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK S INCLUDE "Face Off" and "Frontlines'. 8 out of 10.
