THOUSAND YEAR WAR
'Tyrants And Men'
Alaska's THOUSAND YEAR WAR have released a great release of heavy straight-forward death metal but there is also a lot of melodic over-tones to give the band a nice mix of straight-forward brutal death metal and melodic death metal. Fast, thunderous drumming patterns mixed with some intense outbursts of blasting rage. The guitars are heavy and thick sounding within their approach but there is also some well written complex riffs and solos. The vocals are powerful, deep growls and some blackened shrieks. THOUSAND YEAR WAR does have some darker, more melodic parts, but the band seems more comfortable and at home playing the heavier straight-forward death metal style.
