Gravehill/When All Roads Lead To Hell/Dark Descent Records/2011 CD Review

  Gravehill are a band from California that has had their previous album reviewed in this zine that plays a style that I would describe as being a mixture of black, death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2011 album "When All Roads Lead To Hell" which was released by Dark Descent Records.

Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a lot of brutal sounding blast beats, while the bass playing is kind of mixed down low in the mix and seems to follow the riffs that are coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine influences from black, death and thrash metal with some morbid sounding melodies being utilized at times, while the lead guitars are very distorted sounding underground metal guitar solos in the mid 80's to Early 90's vein.

Vocals are a mixture of black metal and blackened death/metal screams that also have German thrash feel to them and some deep death metal growls as well as samples from films, while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism, War, Killing and Metal, as for the production it has a very heavy and raw feel to it.

In my opinion this is another great album from Gravehill and if you where a fan of their previous releases, you will not be disappointed. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Unholy Executioner" "Devil Worshiper" "Hell Metal Holocaust" and "Consumed By Rats". RECOMMENDED BUY.
