Bushwhacker are a band from Vancouver B.C, Canada that plays a progressive and melodic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their self released 2016 album "The False Dilema" which will be released in March.
Spoken word samples start off the album before going into a more heavier and progressive metal direction t hat also introduces black metal screams onto the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the leads and solo also bring more of a melodic style to the recording.
Death metal growls mix in quite a bit with the black metal screams throughout the recording while the riffs can be very melodic at times and a great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and they also bring in a couple of instrumentals and when t he music speeds up a small amount of blast beats can be heard and they also mix in elements of thrash and when clean playing is utilized it enhances the progressive elements that are also a very huge part of t he bands musical style and some songs also bring in a small amount of melodic singing.
Bushwhacker plays a musical style that takes prog metal and mixes it with melodic black and death metal to create something very original, the production sounds very professional for being as self released recording while the lyrics cover the mind, reality, war, mankind and the apocalypse.
In my opinion Bushwhacker are a very great sounding mixture of prog, melodic black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tower" "Shikadance" "A Path" and "Golden Shell". 8 out of 10.
