This is a review of a split ep between Germany's Bunker 66 and Scotland's Vuil called "Metal Sacrifice" which will be released on December 17th by Ripping Storm Records and we will start off the review with Bunker 66 who return with their mixture of black, thrash, speed and heavy metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a very heavy and old school sound along with some blast beats a few seconds later. The music also mixes in some elements of thrash and speed metal along with the vocals being first wave black metal style screams which also a dds in a touch of the second wave era.
Throughout their side of the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the riffs also adding in a small amount of melody and the solos and leads are also done in an 80's style. The production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover darkness and war themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Bunker 66 and if you are a fan of black, thrash and speed metal, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Army Of The Dark".
Next up is Vuil a band that plays a mixture of thrash and speed metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a very heavy and retro sound while the music also mixes in some elements of thrash and speed metal. Vocals are done in a very rough yet melodic 80''s metal style along with the riffs also adding in a decent amount of melody and the music is heavily rooted in the 80's.
Both of their tracks sound like they could of easily been recorded and released more than 30 years ago as well as the solos and leads also being done in a very melodic and old school style and the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. The production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover darkness, evil and blasphemy themes.
In my opinion Vuil are a very great sounding mixture of thrash and speed metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Head Basher".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and would recommend it to all fans of black, thrash and speed emtal. 8 out of 10.
