Deadspawn are a band from Flagstaff, Arizona that plays a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their self released 2020 album "Pestilence Reborn".
A very heavy and brutal sound starts off the album while the riffs also add in a decent amount of melody at times. Vocals are mostly death metal growls along with all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them and the solos and leads also bring in more of a dark yet melodic style.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can also be heard along with the screams also adding elements of black metal onto the album. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while tremolo picking can also be heard in some of the faster riffing.
The songs also add in a good mixture of both old school and modern influences and as the album progresses a brief use of clean playing can also be heard on a couple of the tracks. The production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover fantasy, horror and occult themes.
In my opinion Deadspawn 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 "Warpath" "Pestilence Reborn" 'This Ascension" and "The Plague Within". 8 out of 10.
