Armagedon are a band from Poland that has been around since the mid 80's and plays a very old school form of death metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Thanatology" which was released by Mystic Productions.
"Helix" opens up the album with sound effects and a minute later elements of electronic music start to kick in before adding in some heavy guitar riffs and drums which leads up to faster riffing, blast beats and deep death metal growls and towards the end there are some dark and melodic guitar solos being utilized.
"Vulture" begins with some heavy guitar riffs and drums and a few seconds alter growls start to come in along with some faster riffing and blast beats and a minute later guitar solos and leads start to come in and out of the song along with some mid paced sections as well as some dark sounding melodies.
"Cemeteries" kicks off with some more mid paced guitar riffing that utilizes some melody before the drums and growls kick in and later on dark sounding guitar leads and blast beats start coming in and out of the song.
'Self Destruction" starts off with heavy guitar riffs and drums which also utilize some blast beats and a few seconds later deep death metal growls start kicking in along with some melodic guitar riffing which also leads up the guitar guitar solos and leads that start coming in and out.
"Altar Of Death" is introduced by some dark, heavy and melodic guitar riffs and drums along with some growls a few seconds later and then the song starts alternating between slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some blast beats and screams.
"Black Seed" has it beginnings with some dark and heavy guitar riffs and drums along with some blast beats and deep growls and a minute later melodies are added into the guitar riffing as well as a small amount of guitar leads.
"Corridor" has its start with some heavy and melodic guitar riffs and brutal drums and the growls kick in a few seconds later along with a small amount of blast beats and towards the end there is a brief use of screams.
"Tragic Journey" which is also the last song on the album opens up with heavy guitar riffs and drums which leads up to some growls and blast beats before adding in some some faster guitar riffing along with some melodic elements but focusing more in mid paced sections as well as adding guitar lead s in certain sections and the song and album close with soem sound effects.
Song lyrics cover dark themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful and heavy sound with the bass guitars being mixed down low in the mix.
In my opinion Armagedon are a very great sounding Polish style death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Helix" "Altar Of Death" and "Tragic Journey". RECOMMENDED BUY.
