Schizoid are a 1 man band from Ontario, Canada that plays black metal mixed in with some influences from grindcore, industrial, and digital hardcore and this is a review of their 2012 album "The New Extreme" which was released by D-Trash Records.
Drum programming ranges from slow, mid paced to fast beats with some programmed blast beats which also mix in the industrial, gabber and digital hardcore influences, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording, as for the sound effects they bring in elements of techno, gabber, and digital hardcore to the music.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that also have a good amount of grindcore and industrial metal influences being thrown into the riffing and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams mixed in with a good amount of industrial style vocals and spoken word samples, while the lyrics cover violent and hateful themes, as for the production it has a very strong and powerful sound and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Schizoid are a very great sounding hybrid of black metal, industrial, grindcore, and digital hardcore and if you are a fan of this musical style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Next Extreme" "Real Evil" "Life Is Struggle" and "Final Descent". RECOMMENDED BUY.
