Speedkiller are a band from Brazil that plays an old school mixture of black, death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Midnight Vampire" which will be released in December by Edged Circle.
A very dark and horror orientated intro starts off the album before going into a heavier musical direction. Dark sounding melodies are also added into some of the faster riffing while the faster sections of the songs also add in a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats and the vocals are a mixture of 80's style death metal growls and black metal screams.
The musical style is also very heavily rooted in the Brazilian style of the 80's and early 90's. while the guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very old school style. Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the music also adding in a decent amount of thrash metal elements and all of the tracks also stick to a heavier direction.
Speedkiller plays a musical style that goes back to the 80's and early 90's styles of Brazilian black, death and thrash metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover street fights, vampirism, occultism, perversion and death themes.
In my opinion Speedkiller are a very great sounding old school 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 "Night Spell" and "Valley of Death". 8 out of 10.
