Acephalix are a band from San Francisco, California that has had their previous album reviewed in this zine with a musical style that combines crust/punk with death metal cd this is a review of their 2012 album "Deathless Master" which was released by Southern Lord Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine crust/punk with death metal mixed in with a good amount of dark sounding melodies, while the lead guitars are very dark and melodic sounding death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls with some high pitched screams and spoken word parts being thrown in at times, while the lyrics cover dark and evil themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and heavy sound to it.
In my opinion this is another great album from Acephalix that is more death metal influenced then there last recordings and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this one as well. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Deathless Master" "Raw Life" and "The Hunger". RECOMMENDED BUY.
