Nerodia are a band from Italy that plays a blackened form of thrash metal with some death metal elements and this is a review of their 2016 album "Vanity Unfair" which was released by Revalve Records.
Clean playing and nature sounds start off the album and after the intro the music goes into a heavier thrash metal direction along with some grim black metal screams and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody and the songs bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some blast beats being utilized at times.
While there is a lot of 80's influences in the bands musical style the music still sounds very modern and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they bring in a darker style of death metal and the fast riffs also use a decent amount of tremolo picking and all of the musical instruments sound very powerful and some songs also bring in the energy of punk rock and as the album progresses clean playing also makes a brief return and on of the later tracks also brings in a small amount of melodic singing and the last track is instrumental and also adds in a small amount of keyboards.
Nerodia plays a musical style that takes black metal and thrash and mixes them together with a more modern track and also adding in touches of punk and death metal to create a very heavy musical sound, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism, Darkness and Ant Human themes.
In my opinion Nerodia are a very great sounding blackened thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Necromorphine Awakening" "Souldead" "Anti Human Propaganda" and "Celebration of The Weak". 8 out of 10.
