Yattai are a band from France that plays a mixture of grindcore, crust, death metal, postcore and doom and this is a review of their 2015 album "Fast Music Means Love" which was released by Bonobostomp.
A very distorted sound starts off the album before going into a doom metal direction and also adding in high pitched screams and death metal growls and the music does also speed up quite a bit and adds in brutal blast beats along with some melody being utilized at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
As the album progresses the music starts going for more of a grindcore direction while some of the later tracks also bring in elements of thrash and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and there are also a few tracks that are recorded live and while most of the tracks stick to a heavy sound one of the songs does bring in a brief use of clean playing.
Yattai plays mostly a brutal style of grindcore but they also mix in doom death metal, postcore, thrash and crust to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover violent and hateful themes.
In my opinion Yattai are a very great sounding mixture of grindcore, crust, death metal, postcore and doom and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Can't Stand" "Before You Go" "Evil Daniel's Style" and "AK-47". 8 out of 10.
