All Out War are a band from New York that plays a very aggressive and brutal form of hardcore with a touch of death metal and this is a review of their 2015 ep "Dying Gods" which was released by Organized Crime Records.
A very hard, heavy and melodic sound starts off the ep along with some aggressive screaming vocals that also border on death metal and there is also a brief use of acoustic guitars before adding in more of an aggressive New York hardcore style sound and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
When the music speeds up a small amount of blast beats can be heard and they also mix in shouting vocals quite a bit throughout the recording and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they bring in an old school extreme metal sound to the bands musical style and there is also a brief use of spoken word samples and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some riffs also bring in a touch of thrash and the last track brings in a brief use of female vocals.
All Out War plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in hardcore but also mixes in the aggression of thrash and heaviness of death metal which also makes their music stand out a bit more, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover the corruption of organized religion, ecocide, and the degradation and exploitation of the weak.
In my opinion All Out War are a very great sounding hardcore band with a touch of thrash and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Vengeance Reigns Eternal" and "God Is Dead". 8 out of 10.
