Alchemy are a band from Australia that plays a brutal form of blackened death metal and this is a review of their self released 2019 ep "Infinite Forms Of Torture".
A very heavy and brutal sound starts off the ep along with the vocals being mostly death metal growls. All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the riffs also add in a decent amount of dark sounding melodies and blast beats are also added into the faster parts of the music.
When screams are utilized they bring elements of black metal onto the recording along with the solos and leads being done in a very dark and melodic style. A decent amount of 90's influences can also be heard in the band musical style while the songs also bring in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and towards the end a brief use of keyboards can also be heard.
Alchemy plays a musical style that takes mid 90's era brutal death metal and mixes it with black metal to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover murder and torture themes.
In my opinion Alchemy are a very great sounding brutal blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Hadethma". 8 out of 10.
