Fisthammer/Devour All To See/Hore Pain Gore Death Productions/2012 CD Review

Fisthammer are a band from Philadelpha that plays a very technical, brutal and melodic form of blackened death metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "Devour All To See" which was released by Hore Pain Gore Productions.

Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with riffs that dominate throughout the recording.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine brutal technical death metal with blackened death metal mixed in with a good amount of melody while the lead guitars are very technical and melodic sounding death metal guitar solos and leads that utilize a great amount of talent and skill, as for the acoustic guitars which are only utilized briefly they use finger picking to enhance the darkness of the music.

Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls mixed in with some high pitched blackened death metal screams, while the lyrics cover Egyptian, Mythology and Apocalyptic themes, as for the production it has a very strong, heavy, powerful and professional sound to it.

In my opinion Fisthammer are a very great sounding technical and brutal blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Aten: Fear The Obliteration Of Earth" "Kull The Conqueror" "Doom Of The Gods" and "The Ressurection Of Bastet the Destroyer". RECOMMENDED BUY.
