This is a review of a split ep between Brazil's Whipstriker and Italy's Bunker 66 called "Four Deadly Bites" which will be released on December 17th by Ripping Storm Records and we will start off the review with Whipstriker who return with their mixture of black, speed metal and punk.
Their side of the split starts out with some amp noises before going into a heavier speed emtal direction while the vocals are done in more of a first wave black metal style. Elements of punk, d beat and thrash metal are also added into the music as well as the solos and leads being done in a very melodic and old school style.
The second track also brings in a decent mixture of both mid tempo and fast parts as well as giving the 80's style a more modern atmosphere and both of the tracks also stick to a heavier direction, all of the musical instruments on their side of the recording have a very powerful sound to them. The production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover war themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Whipstriker and if you are a fan of black, thrash, speed metal and punk, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Warfreaks' Shellshock".
Next up is Bunker 66 who return with their mixture of black, thrash and speed metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a very heavy and 80's influenced old school sound along with all of the musical instruments on t heir side of the recording also having a very powerful sound to them. Vocals are done in mostly a first wave black metal style and while the music is rooted in the past it still has a modern day aggression.
During the faster sections of the music a decent amount of blast beats can be heard along with the solos and leads sticking to more an an 80's influenced extreme metal direction and on the second track the music also adds in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. The production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover nuclear war and urban tale themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Bunker 66 and if you are a fan of black, thrash and speed metal, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Winds Of Damnation".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of black, thrash and speed metal. 8 out of 10.
