Trepid Elucidation are a band from Portugal that plays a very progressive and technical form of death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Upcoming Reality" which will be released on February 24th by Mosher Records.
Synths and distorted guitar sounds start off the album along with some death metal growls that lead up to a heavier musical direction where you can also hear all of the instruments that are presented on the recording and the riffing also incorporates a great amount of progressive elements and melody.
Most of the guitar leads are done in a very melodic and technical style while high pitched screams are also added into some parts of the songs and some of the tracks are long and epic in length and some tracks also bring in bass leads and when the music speeds up a great amount o brutal blast beats can be heard and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with clean playing also being added into certain sections of the recording and synths also return on some of the later songs.
Trepid Elucidation plays a style of death metal that is very technical and progressive sounding while also having its brutal moments, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Trepid Elucidation are a very great sounding progressive and technical death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Unquestionable Death" and "Corpse That Breeds". 8 out of 10.
