Phylogeny are a duo from Spain that plays a very brutal and technical form of blackened death metal and this is a review of their self released and self titled 2014 ep.
The ep starts out with a very heavy and melodic sound with some spoken samples before getting more heavy and technical along with a mixture of black and death metal vocals and then the music gets more fast and brutal along with programmed blast beats and the band also brings in a mixture of technical, mid paced and fast parts.
After awhile all of the musical instruments start sonnding very powerful as well as bringing in deathcore elements and atmospheric synths while also remaining brutal all at the same time and later on experimental parts are added in with the brutality this music produces and for a few seconds the keyboards bring a gothic horror feeling to the recording and the last track has a very dark and raw feeling to it as well as being all instrumental.
With this ep Phylogeny take a very brutal and technical form of death metal and mix it in with a good amount of black metal influence along with some melody and atmospheric sounds as well as having a very professional sounding production and lyrics that cover horror and gore topics.
In my opinion Phylogeny are a very great sounding technical and brutal blackened death metal b and and if you fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Seizure Of The Tremoctopus". 8 out of 10.
