Phosphorus are a band from Quebec, Canada that plays a blackened form of death/thrash metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Devastation" which was released by HSP Productions.
Thunder and rain sounds start off the ep along with the sounds of war and after the intro the music goes into more of a fast and melodic direction along with soem blast beats and grim black metal screams and the music also brings in a great amount of 80's thrash and death metal elements along with a touch of 90's black metal.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when guitar leads are used they are done in a melodic fashion and growls can also be heard in the music at times and the fast riffs also bring in a decent amount of tremolo picking and there is also a brief use of clean guitars and spoken word parts along with synths are added onto the outro.
Phosphorus takes the old school styles of black, death and thrash metal and mixes them in with a more modern approach to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover devastation themes.
In my opinion Phosphorus are 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 "Devastation-1" and "Devastation-III". 8 out of 10.
