Harvested - Harvested
The debut of the Canadian death metalers Harvested is scheduled for may 7th , the self titled EP is formed by five tracks of brutal and technical death metal with a mix between old and modern styles of it. The main influences come from bands like Suffocation, Cannibal Corpse, Deicide or Zyklon, with these names you can make an idea of what to find here, produced by themselves, mixed and mastered by Dark Moon productions.
Wel, first of all, Harvested are from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and they are Adam Sendler - voice, Mitchi Dimitriadis - guitars, Eric Forget - bass and Jacob Colins - drums, also a live member Miguel Marcheterre Piña - guitar, they are also in other bands Misshapen, A Scar For The Wicked, Harmoniaq, Hatred Reigns, the year of formation maybe is three or four years ago, I think.
From the first notes of first track 'Apathetic' you realize that these men are a serious bet to get a place in the death metal scene, with solid riffs and powerful rhythmic base, also melodic but not soft solo.
'Bludgeoned' first time similar to CANNIBAL, voice is also similar, some modern brushestrokes, nice screamings, very good solo, and a part of virtuous bass line that level up the track.
'Incognitive' an absolute brutality, ready to break your neck? With influences of DEICIDE and CANNIBAL CORPSE.
'Delirium' a riff with a technical touch, it has all ingredients to destroy you, brutal like a hammer smashing heads, and technical.
'Bereavement', also a sample of how to make things in the correct way, can not stop make circles with head, and a inspired solo, with the determination of well grounded death metal.
As you can read, I like this EP very much, it has all parts you need to listen to death metal: brutality, technical, good execution, guttural, screams, and growls, blast beats, double bass drums parts, virtuous parts and most important, good songs, it's a sample of how to make everything fit correctly.
