Scorched Earth are a band from Seattle, Washington that plays a mixture of black, death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2012 ep "Marauders" which was released by No Visible Scars.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine black, death and thrash metal together to create a sound of their own as well as some punk influences, while the lead guitars are very old school sounding heavy metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly growls and screams that have an early black metal and thrash feeling to them while having somewhat of a punk edge to them, while the lyrics cover darkness and metal themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and raw sound to it while you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Scorched Earth are a very great sounding hybrid of black, death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Harken To Your Allfather". RECOMMENDED BUY.
