Toadeater are a band from Germany that plays a mixture of post black metal, crust and hardcore punk and this is a review of their self released 2018 demo.
Shoegaze style guitar leads start off the demo along with some atmospheric sounds before going into a heavier direction while the vocals bring in angry black metal screams along with the faster sections of the songs also using a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the music more of a raw feeling.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some clean post rock style playing at times while the music also mixes in elements of crust and hardcore punk as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
Toadeater plays a musical style that takes black metal, crust, hardcore punk and post rock and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Toadeater are a very great sounding mixture of post black metal, crust and hardcore punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Lathe". 8 out of 10.
