Master are a band from Chicago, Illinois that has been featured before in this zine with a history that goes back 30 years and one of the original death/thrash metal bands and this is a review of their 2012 album "The New Elite" which was released by Pulverised Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with heavy riffs that dominate throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine death metal with thrash as well as some punk influences, while the lead guitars, while the lead guitars are very raw and primitive sounding death/thrash metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly deep death/thrash screams and growls along with some more traditional death metal style growls in addition there is a brief spoken word part on the last song, while the lyrics cover hateful, everyday and anti religion themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion this is another great album from Master and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this one as well. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The New Elite" "Remove The Knife" "Redirect The Evil" and "Souls To Dissuade". RECOMMENDED BUY.
