The Beyond are a band from Italy that plays a very old school form of death metal and this is a review of their self released 2013 ep "Decaying Death".
"Decaying Death" which is the title track and also the first song on the ep begins with heavy and brutal old school death metal guitar riffs and drums which also utilize blast beat and you can hear melody in the guitars and then the music slows down and adds in deep growls and then alternating between fast and slow parts.
"Crime And Punishment" opens up with heavy guitar riffs and drums and then the music goes into a faster direction along with blast beats and melodic guitar riffing which also leads to growls and then the song alternates between mid paced and fast parts.
'Tortured Till Redemption" begins with slow and melodic old school death metal guitar riffs before adding in bass and drums and then getting heavier which also leads to the growls kicking in and the song alternates between mid paced and slow parts.
"Mass Lobotomy" which is the last song opens up with heavy and melodic guitar and bass riffs along with drums and a few seconds later growls kick in and later on the music goes into a faster direction along with some blast beats.
Song lyrics cover death, dying and torture themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and sol school sound for being a self released recording.
In my opinion The Beyond are a very great sounding old school death metal b and and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Decaying Death" and "Mass Lobotomy". RECOMMENDED BUY.
