Thousand Year War are a band from Anchorage, Alaska that plays a mixture of melodic death and black metal and this is a review of their 2011 album "Tyrants And Men" which was released by Abyss Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being used on occasion, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine melodic death and black metal together along with some traditional and classic metal influences, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are a mixture of deep death metal growls and high pitched melodic black/death metal screams, while the lyrics cover Mythology, epic and war themes, as for the production it has a very heavy, powerful and professional sound to it.
In my opinion Thousand Year War are a very good melodic death/black metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Defiance" "No Gods, No Masters" "The Storm I Ride" and "Spartacus". RECOMMENDED BUY.
