Sarmat are a band from Poland that plays a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their self released 2021 album "RS-28".
A very fast and brutal sound starts off the album along with a great amount of blast beats while melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing. High pitched black metal screams are also a very huge part of the recording as well as the vocals also utilizing a great amount of deep death metal growls.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very dark yet melodic style while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. One of the tracks also introduces clean playing onto the recording along with some tremolo picking also b eing added into some of the faster riffing, as the album progresses a brief use of keyboards can also be heard before returning back to a heavier direction.
Sarmat plays a style of blackened death metal that is very fast, aggressive and brutal sounding. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover destruction, military industry, human fears and obsessions.
In my opinion Sarmat are a very great sounding blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Coldgrinder" "RS-28" and "You Don't Live IN mY wAR". 8 OUT OF 10.
