Southwicked are a band from Florida that plays a very old school form of death metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "Death's Crown" which was released by Abyss Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with only a small amount of blast beats, while t he bass playing h as a very strong and powerful tone with heavy death metal riffs that dominate throughout the recording with a southern feeling to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast old school Florida style death metal riffs that dont utilize the more modern or technical sound of the newer bands, while the lead guitars are old school death metal guitar solos or leads that have a southern rock feeling to them at times.
Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls with some high pitched screams and samples, while the lyrics cover serial killers and murder, 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 Southwicked are a very great sounding old school style death metal band and if you are a fan of this style of music, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Death's Crown" "Killing Spree" "Charming Karma" and "Green River Killings". RECOMMENDED BUY.
