Korsakov where a band from the Netherlands that where around in the mid 80's to early 90's that played a mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2015 compilation album "Unique Remains" which will be releeased in June by Vic Records.
A very fast and raw early death metla sound starts off the album along with some blast beats and growling vocals and you can also hear a lot of melody in the music and while you can tell the songs are demo tracks all of the musical instruments still have a very powerful sound to them and screams can be heard at times.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the solos and leads are very much in tune with the mid 80's to early 90's style of death metal and spoken word parts can also be heard briefly in some songs and the riffs also mix in a great amount of thrash influences in a great amount of the tracks and some of the songs also bring in a small amount of samples and the last track also brings in a brief use of clean playing.
Korsakov played a style of death metal that was very heavy, fast and raw for its time and also mixed in a great amount of thrash influences, the production sounds very heavy and raw while the lyrics cover violent, dark and real life themes.
In my opinion Korsakov where are a very sounding mixture of death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Artificial Blasphemy" "Worldwar XIII" "Cryptic Sin" and "Doomsday Messiah". 8 out of 10..
