Sulgogar are a band from Venezuela that plays a mixture of black, death and thrash metal and this is a review of their self released 2019 album "Cannibal-Toon" which will be released on June 28th.
A cartoon orientated intro starts off the album before going into a heavier musical direction. A great amount of thrash metal elements can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of blast beats and the vocals are mostly death metal growls.
Melodies can also be heard in the guitar riffing while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them. When screams are utilized they bring elements of black metal onto the recording along with the solos and leads remaining true to an old school extreme metal style when they are utilized as well as having there melodic moments.
A lot of the music is very heavily rooted in the 80's and 90's but also sounding very modern at the same time. Tremolo picking can also be heard in some of the faster riffing and as the album progresses a brief use of synths can be heard before returning back to a heavier direction and one track also brings in a brief use of female vocals, a couple of the tracks a re instrumentals. The production sounds very old school while the lyrics are written in Spanish and cover political themes.
In my opinion Sulgogar 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 "Cannibal-Toon" "Ninos Muriendo" and "Republicia Criminal". 8 out of 10.
