Scalpture are a band from Germany that plays an old school form of death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Panzerdoktrin" which was released by Final Gate Records.
Military beats start off the album before going into more of a heavier and melodic direction and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard while the vocals are mostly death metal growls and the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's Swedish style of the genre and the solos and leads are very melodic.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and all of the songs sound like they could of easily been recorded and released more than 20 years ago and there is also a brief use of war era spoken word samples before returning back to a heavier direction and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Scalpture plays a style of death metal that is heavily rooted in the 90's Swedish style of the genre ans also always remains heavy, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover war themes.
In my opinion Scalpture are a very great sounding old school death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "...Panzer Hooray!" "Flattened Horizons(Pounding Howitzers)" and "Embrace the Afterglow". 8 out of 10.
