Zed Destructive are a band from Israel that plays a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Corroded By Darkness" which was released as a joint effort between Grimm Distribution and Wings Of Destruction.
A very fast and brutal sound starts off the album along with a great amount of blast beats while the vocals also bring in a mixture of death metal growls and black metal screams. Melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing as well as the music also adding in a great amount of 90's influences but keeping it modern at the same time.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic style. Some of the tracks also adds in a small amount of classical guitars before returning back to a heavier direction as well as all of the musical instruments on the recording also having a very powerful sound to them.
At times the music also gets very technical sounding along with some of the songs also being long and epic in length as well as some of the faster riffing also adding in some tremolo picking and the album also closes with a cover of Deicide's "The Truth Above". The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover occultism, anti religion and anti social themes.
In my opinion Zed Destructive are a very great sounding blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Repulsive Society" "Church" "Your Lies" and "Eternal Damnation". 8 out of 10.
