Ara are a band from Wisconsin that plays a very technical and brutal form of death metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 album "Devourer Of Words".
A very distorted sound starts off the album along with some guitar riffing that evolves into more of a technical death metal sound along with some growls, melodies and all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and after the intro the music starts getting more brutal and also incorporates more blast beats.
There is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts present throughout the recording and the vocals also get more guttural at times while the vocals are mostly a traditional style of death metal growling and they also add in high pitched screams into certain sections of the recording and the solos and leads also add more of a melodic and technical sound to the recording when they are utilized and one of the tracks also bring in a few seconds of acoustic guitars while the rest of the recording sticks to mostly a brutal and technical sound.
Ara plays a style of death metal that is very technical and brutal and they also demonstrate a great amount of talent and skill as musicians, the production sounds very professional foe being a self release d recording while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Ara are a very great sounding brutal and technical death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Obelisk" "Cadaverlanche" "Execution" and "Human Garbage". 8 out of 10.
