Annihilated are a band from California that plays a very brutal and extreme form of death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "XII Steps To Ruination" which will be released on October 28th by Unique Leader.
A very dark and heavy death metal sound starts off the album along with some growling vocals and a small amount of morbid sounding melodies before the music starts to get more brutal and incorporate blast beats and the band also uses a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with high pitched screams and spoken word parts being added into certain sections of the recording.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and the solos and leads bring in a very dark and melodic old school death metal sound to the album when they are utilized and most of the songs present on the album stick to mostly a more modern and brutal style of death metal and every second and minute of all of the tracks have a very heavy sound to them and there is never a soft moment present anywhere on the recording.
Annihilated create a very heavy and brutal style death metal on t his recording and what the y lack in originality they make up in heaviness, talent and skill, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover political, mystical and humanity themes along with corrupt and fucked up politics and government themes.
In my opinion Annihilated are a very great sounding brutal death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should c heck out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Global Enslavement" "Eradication Profits" "Wastelands" and "Thrones of Eternity". 8 out of 10.
