Chugun are a band from Israel that plays a mixture of death and thrash metal with some touches of modern metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Virus" which will be released on June 30th by Sliptrick Records.
A very heavy and aggressive sound starts off the album along with some death metal growls and screams a few seconds later and the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of blast beats while you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and the riffs can also be very melodic at times.
A great amount of thrash and modern metal influences can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and some 80's and early 90's influences can be heard in the bands musical style and there is only a brief use of any guitar solos and leads while the album also remains heavy and aggressive from beginning to ending of the recording.
Chugun plays a musical style that takes death and old school thrash metal and mixes it in with elements of modern metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion Chugun are a very great sounding mixture of death, thrash and modern metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Unholy Warrior" "Sadistic Rites" "Fall Of Mankind" and "Evil Whiskey". 8 out of 10.
