Genuine Relief/Shreds Of Sanity/2011 Demo Review


  Genuine  Relief   are  a  band  from  Chezch  Republic  that  plays  a  blackened  form  of  death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  self  released  2011  demo  "Shreds  Of  Sanity".

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  blast  beats  being  present  on  this recording,  while  the  synths  bring  a  very  progressive  sound  to  the  recording,  as  for  the  bass  playing  it  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  are  coming  out  of  the  guitars.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  blackened  death  metal  riffs  that  utilize  a  great  amount  of  melody  being  thrown  into  the  riffing,  while  the  lead  guitars  are  very  melodic  black/death  metal  guitar  solos   and  leads.

  Vocals  range  from  deep  death  metal  growls  to  high  pitched  black  metal  screams,  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  strong,  powerful  and  heavy  soound  for  being  a  self  released  recording.

  In  my  opinion  Genuine  Relief  are  a  very  great  sounding  atmospheric  blackened  death  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  demo.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Caress  For  Soul".  RECOMMENDED BUY.
