Con-Formed are a band from Singapore that plays a mixture of black, death emtal, power violence and grindcore and this is a review of their 2020 ep "Kodrat" which was released by Nailed Nazarene Industries.
A very distorted sound starts off the ep before adding some black metal screams onto the recording which also takes the music into a heavier direction. All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them while the vocals also add in a decent amount of crust style shouts.
The riffs also add in a decent amount of dissonant structures while spoken word parts and samples can also be heard briefly. When the music speeds up a great amount of grindcore elements of brutal blast beats can be heard along with some death metal growls also being utilized at times as well as the music also adding in a decent amount of power violence touches.
Most of the tracks are also very short in length along with one track also adding in a brief use of clean playing as well as the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts, when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very chaotic style. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover political themes.
In my opinion Con-Formed are a very great sounding mixture of black, death metal, power violence and grindcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Reminder' and "Purity In Ashes-The Cleansing". 8 out of 10.
