Vex are a band from Texas that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style that mixes melodic black metal with progressive death metal and thrash and this is a review of their 2013 album "Memorious" which will be released by Horror Pain Gore Death Productions.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine melodic death metal with progressive death metal and thrash to create a sound of their own, while the lead guitars are very melodic and progressive sounding black/death metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking and full chords to add more progressive touches to the music.
Vocals range from high pitched black metal screams to deep death metal growls along with a brief use of clean singing and spoken word samples, while the lyrics cover dark and depressing themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording with some of the songs being long and epic in length..
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Vex and if you are a f an of this band, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Carve My Eyes" "Spectral Nation" "Away From The Sun" and "A Drinking Song". RECOMMENDED BUY.
