Exoskelett are a band from Sweden that plays a mixture of black, thrash and heavy metal and this is a review of their self titled 2019 album Which was released by Dod Vag Records.
A very hard and heavy sound starts off the album along with with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to t hem. Vocals are done in more of a first weave black metal screaming style while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of blast beats.
Most of the music is very heavily rooted in the 80's while also sounding very modern at the same time. Elements of thrash and heavy metal can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording. A decent amount of melody can also be heard in the guitar riffing as well as the solos and leads sticking to more of an old school style.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. The fast riffs also utilize a decent amount of tremolo picking while one track also adds a brief use of clean playing onto the recording as as the album progresses back up vocals and psychedelic sounds are also added into some parts of the music. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in a mixture of English and Swedish and cover violence and darkness themes.
In my opinion Exoskelett are a very great sounding mixture of black, thrash and heavy metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Born Accursed" "Manniskoskal" and "Lycanthropy". 8 out of 10.
