This is a review of a split album between Spain's Gathering Darkness and Canada's Tyrant's Blood called "The Light Won't Save You" which was released by Hectatombe Records in 2014 and we will start off the review with Gathering Darkness a band that plays a very brutal form of death metal.
Their side of the split starts out with death metal growls before going into a very fast and brutal direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats while the songs also bring in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while t he solos and leads bring in a very dark and melodic style and high pitched screams are also used at times and there is also a brief use of spoken word samples and all of t heir songs stick to a heavy and brutal direction, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover death and suffering themes.
In my opinion Gathering Darkness are a very great sounding brutal death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Devoured By Earth" and "Through The Oceans Of Misery".
Next up is Tyrant's Blood a band that plats a mixture of black, war, death and thrash metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a very heavy, chaotic and old school thrash sound that evolves into war metal once the music speeds up and adds in vocals while the vocals also bring in a great mixture of both death metal growls and black metal screams and the riffs also bring in dark sounding melodies.
All of the musical instruments sound very powerful and the solos and leads remain true to a war metal style and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and all of the songs stick to a very heavy musical style, the production sounds very raw, heavy and old school while the lyrics cover violence and war themes.
In my opinion Tyrant's Blood are a very great sounding mixture of war, black, death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Destroyer" and "Fragments Of A Dying World".
In conclusion i feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of war, black and death metal. 8 out of 10.
