Thunderwar are a band from Poland that plays a very old school and melodic form of blackened death metal and this is a review of their 2018 ep "Wolfpack" which will be released in May by Lifeforce Records.
A very heavy and old school sound starts off the ep along with some death metal growls a few seconds later while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard as well as the tremolo picking bringing in elements of black metal.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the riffs also bring in a great amount of melody along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic fashion and clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and some of the riffing also brings in elements of early 80's era traditional metal and atmospheric drones can also be heard briefly as well as one track bringing in melodic pagan vocals.
Thunderwar plays a musical style that takes melodic black and old school death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of t heir own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Paganism, Occultism, Mythology, War and Psychology themes.
In my opinion Thunderwar are a very great sounding old school and melodic blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Wolfpack" and "Circle Of Runes". 8 out of 10.
