Bastardizer are a band from Australia that plays a blackened form of thrash metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Dawn Of Domination" which will be released in April as a joint effort between Evil Spell Records and Undercover.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album along with some old school yet melodic metal guitar solos and leads being introduced onto the recording a few seconds later. All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams.
Blast beats can also be heard during the faster sections of the songs while the music also brings in a great amount of 80's thrash and first wave black metal elements but done in more of a modern style. Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Tremolo picking can also be heard in some of the faster sections of the riffing while some tracks also bring in a decent amount of back up shouts along with the music always sticking to a very heavy and aggressive musical direction. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism, Evil, Death, Hell, Lust, Damnation, Women and Alcohol themes.
In my opinion Bastardizer are a very great sounding blackened thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Dose Of Vengeance" "Demons Unleashed" "Hellions of The Oath" and "Unholy Allegiance". 8 out of 10.
