Exoskelett are a band from Sweden that plays a blackened form of thrash metal and this is a review of t heir self released 2016 ep "Grind Your Bones To Dust".
A very dark and melodic guitar lead starts off the ep along with some heavy riffing a few seconds later which also leads up to some very aggressive vocals that are very heavily influenced by the first wave of black metal and the riffs also mix in a great amount of thrash elements while still having a modern take on the genre.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody at times while the songs stick to mostly a slow or mid paced direction while keeping everything heavy from beginning to ending of the recording and on the last track there is a brief use of fast playing and blast beats.
Exoskelett plays a musical style that takes first and second wave black metal and mixes it with thrash to create a style of their own, the production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Exoskelett are a very great sounding blackened thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Unholy Alliance". 8 out of 10.
