Grace Disgraced are a band from Russia that plays a very technical, old school and brutal form of death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "The primal Cause: Womanumental" which was released by More Hate Productions.
A very heavy, old school and technical sound starts off the album with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful and there is also a decent amount of melody in the bands musical sound and a few seconds later death metal growls are added onto the album which also leads to blast beats becoming a huge part of the songs on the recording.
There is also a decent album of thrash influences in the songs and the lead guitars are in the early 90's vein of Death and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and a good amount of brutal elements are also mixed into the bands technical and old school sound in certain sections of the recording.
As the album progresses the band brings in a brief use of sound effects on a couple of tracks along with a small amount of tribal style drumming which gives the music a shamanistic feeling before returning back to a heavier direction as well as adding in some back up growls and a brief use of spoken word robotic vocals on a couple of songs and most of the later songs stick to a more mid paced direction while it still also has its fast and brutal moments and at times the guitar leads have a progressive metal feeling to them and the album closes with some soft and clean guitar playing.
Grace Disgraced play a very technical and old school style of death metal which seems to be heavily influenced by the 90's material while also taking their musical style into a more brutal direction, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Grace Disgraced are a very great sounding old school technical death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should c heck out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Secondary" "She Smells Death" and "Dragons Of Emptiness". 8 out of 10.
