Feral are a band from Sweden that has toured with Six Feet Under and plays a form of early 90's Swedish death metal with a thrashy edge and this is a review of their 2009 demo demo "Welcome To Your Graveyard".
Drums use a mixture of different beats with some midpaced groove rythyms that end up turning into some real brutal blast beats, while the bass playing can actually be heard on this recording and it sounds very rythymic with some lead bass parts.
Rhythm guitars mix alot of thrash influenced riffs with some really fast classic death metal riffing that utilize alot of palm muting and speed picking mixed in with some slow heavy parts, while the guitar leads sound primal with alot of melody and some exotic sounding scales.
Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls that are easy to understand, while the production sounds very professional and you can hear all of the instruments, as for the lyrics they cover your typical death metal subjects such as graveyards, death, and horror related type of themes.
In my opinion this is a really good band that plays death metal in the old vein but probably will be ignored by some younger people since they actually have talent, guitar solos, and no pig squeels, but if you are an old school death metal fan in your mid 20's to early 30's you will enjoy this band. I am looking forward to hearing more stuff from this band in the future.
Recommended tracks include "The Deathbog" and "welcome To The Graveyard".
