Feral are a band from Sweden that has their previous album reviewed and has also had an interview here in the past with a style that I would describe as being Swedish death metal with a rock and thrash edge and this is a review of their 2011 album "Dragged To The Altar" which was released by Ibex Moon Records.
Drums alternate between slow, midpaced to fast playing with a good amount of blast beats, while the bass playing sounds very heavy and powerful with a classic rock feel to them.
Rhythm guitars alternate between slow, midpaced to fast Swedish style death metal riffs with some thrash and rock influences and a great amount of harmonics, while the lead giuitars are a mixture of chaotic sounding death metal and rock guitar solos d on one song there are some middle eastern scales being utilized breifly, as for the acoustic guitar that is used on the outro, it has a very dark and cryptic sound to it.
Vocals are all deep death metal growls mixed in with some horror movie samples, while the lyrics touch on Occultism, Necromancy, Anti-Christianity, and Graveyards, as for the production it has a very raw and heavy sound to it but still retians a degree of professionalism since you can hear all of the musical instruments and they all have a brutal sound to them.
In my opinion this is aother great album from Feral, and if you where a fan of their previous release, you will not be dissapointed. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Altar Of Necromancy" "Judas" "The Curse of The Casket" and "Malevolent Summoning". RECEMMONDED BUY.
