Master are a band from Chicago, Illinois that has been featured before in this zine with a long history while also being one of the creators of death/thrash metal and this is a review of their unreleased 1985 album "Unknown Soldier" which was re-issued by Vic Records during the year of 2013.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with not much in the way of blast beats, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast early death metal riffs that still had the thrash sound to them, while the lead guitars are very raw and primitive sounding death/thrash metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are all early death metal growls that have a thrash edge to them without the melodic elements, while the lyrics cover darkness, violence and anti religion themes, as for the production it has a very heavy, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Master and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Master" "Funeral Bitch" "Pledge Of Allegiance" and "Submerged In Sin". RECOMMENDED BUY.
