Godless Angel are a 1 man band from Kansas that plays a mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of his 2015 album "Harvester of Shadows" which will be released in February by Inverse Records.
Clean playing which is also used on some of the other tracks as well starts off the album along with giving the recording a very dark atmosphere and a few seconds later guitar leads which can also be very melodic at times become a huge part off the songs along with a great amount of heavy riffing that is very heavily influenced by thrash metal and also incorporates a great amount of melody.
After the intro the music starts getting a lot more aggressive and also adds in mid 80's style death metal growls and screams that are also easier to understand a lot more than the modern bands while the solos really start demonstrating a great amount of skill and talent and the songs also use a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with a great amount of blast beats being utilized during the faster sections of the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and some of the tracks also bring in elements of groove.
Godless Angel plays a style of death and thrash metal that is very heavily rooted in the mid 80's and early 90's and also adds in a good amount of melody and darkness into his musical sound, the production sounds very professional and also makes an old school style sound more modern while the lyrics cover Horror, Death and Occultism themes.
In my opinion Godless Angel are a very great sounding mixture of death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Contaminated Breach In Sector B" "Suffering the Wrath Of the Goddess" and "Disemboweling The Deranged". 8 out of 10.
