This is a review of a split ep between Baltimore, Maryland's Neolithic and Sweden's Martyrdod which will be released in February by Deep Six Records and we will start off the review with Neolithic a band that plays a mixture of hardcore, d beat, crust and death metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a very heavy guitar sound along with some death metal growls a few seconds alter while the faster sections of the song also bring in a great amount of blast beats along with the music also mixing in elements of hardcore, d beat and crust as well as the riffs also bringing in a small amount of melody and screams are also used at times, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Neolithic are a very great sounding mixture of hardcore, d beat, crust and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band.
Next up is Martyrdod returning with t heir mixture of crust and grindcore with some black metal touches.
There side of the split starts out with a very heavy yet melodic sound along with some elements of crust and grindcore while the vocals are mostly high pitched screams as well as the solos and leads also bringing in a great amount of melody, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover war themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding track from Martyrdod and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy their side of the split.
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and would recommend it to all fans of hardcore, crust, d beat, grind and death metal. 8 out of 10.
