Soul Annihilation where a band from Boston, Massachusetts that played a blackened form of death metal with elements of thrash and this is a review of their self released 2011 ep "Early Grave".
A very fast, heavy and brutal sound starts off the ep along with some blast beats before adding in growls, screams and technical parts and after awhile the band brings in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some melodies and after awhile there is a brief use of clean playing.
The bands musical style combines black, death and thrash metal together and they bring in a great amount of talent and skill with their musical sound as well as making every track sound very brutal and they also go back to the early 90's style of black and death metal as well as ignoring modern trends and the last track sees the band adding in melodic guitar leads.
Soul Annihilation had a very interesting approach to the way they combine black, death and thrash metal together as well as having a great balance between brutal, technical and melodic parts, the production sounds very heavy for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover Occultism, Mythology, Anti Christian and Existential themes.
In my opinion Soul Annihilation where a very great sounding mixture of black, death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hell's Fire" and "As The Universe Decays". 8 out of 10.
