Kamikaze Zombie are a band from Birmingham, Alabama that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of black, sludge, doom, thrash metal and punk and this is a review of their self released 2019 album "The Destroyer Of All Things".
Horror movie samples start off the album before going into more of a heavier musical direction which mixes the raw energy with the heaviness of thrash metal. A decent amount of melody can be heard in the guitar riffing while the vocals bringing in a great mixture of aggressive screams and shouts.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling. Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic style.
Elements of sludge and doom metal can be heard in t he slower sections of the music along with some death metal growls also being utilized at times as well as horror movie samples being added onto the other tracks and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and all of the music sticks to a heavier direction. The production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover horror movie themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording Kamikaze Zombie and if you are a fan of black, sludge, doom, thrash metal and punk, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Prometheus" "Devil's Night" "The Cycle Of Demons" and "Beware Of The Moon". 8 out of 10.
