Bonehammer are a band from Argentina that plays a mixture of black, thrash, heavy metal and crust punk and this is a review of their 2020 album "Black Crust invasion" which was released by Awakening Records.
A very heavy and old school sound starts off the album while the riffs also add in a decent amount of melody. Vocals are done in more of a black emtal style which is heavily influenced by both the first and second wave eras of the genre and the riffs also mix in some traditional metal elements.
Clean playing and spoken word parts can also be heard in some parts of the recording while the music is heavily rooted in the 80's but still capture of very modern atmosphere. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style and w hen the music speeds up touches of crust punk and d beat can also be heard.
One track also introduces keyboards onto the recording along with some blast beats and thrash metal influences also being added into the faster sections of the songs. Melodic chanting can also be heard briefly as well a s all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them and the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts the album also closes with a cover of Motorhead's "March or Die". The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover pagan rituals, occultism and horror stories
In my opinion Bonehammer are a very great sounding mixture of black, thrash, heavy metal and crust punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dark Pagan Cult" "Living A Rotting Nightmare" "Possessed" and "Reborn In Hell". 8 out of 10.
