A Lie Nation are a band from Finland that plays a melodic form of blackened death metal and this is a review of their 2017 ep "Begin Hate" which was released by Inverse Records.
A very heavy guitar sound starts off ep along with some grim black metal screams a few seconds later and back up gang shouts can also be heard at times while the faster sections of the songs bring in a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats and the solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the riffs also using a great amount of melody and elements of death metal can also be heard in the bands musical style along with a few growls and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts and acoustic guitars are added onto the last track.
A Lie Nation plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in melodic black metal while a great amount of death metal influences can be heard, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover misanthropy, hate, and yearning of nonexistence themes.
In my opinion A Lie Nation are a very great sounding melodic blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Rot Of The Spirit" and "A Burn Afar". 8 out of 10.
