India's Heathen Beast have returned with a new recording that shows the music going into more of a blackened grindcore direction and this is a review of their 2017 ep "$cam" which will be released in June by Transcending Obscurity India.
Spoken word samples start off the ep before going into a heavier grindcore direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats while the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams along with the riffs also bringing in the more raw side of the genre and melodies can also be heard at times.
Deep growls are added into certain sections of the recording and the songs also b ring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and all of the musical instruments also sound very powerful along with spoken word samples also returning on some of the later tracks and some of the songs are very short in length. and the fast riffs also use a great amount of tremolo picking and the music also always remains heavy and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion.
Heathen Beast creates a recording that goes for a mixture of black metal and grindcore this time around, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover the corruption of the government.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Heathen Beast and if you are a fan of black metal and grindcore, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Fuck Poor People, I Have Paymt" "If The Army Can Do It, So Can Yoe" and "My Note Has GPS". 8 out of 10.
