This is a review of a split ep between Columbia/Italy's Restos Humanos and Germany's Cryptic Brood which was released by Equinox Discos and we will start off the review with Restos Humanos a band that plays a mixture of death metal, grindcore and crust.
Their side of the split starts out with clean playing and horror movie style keyboards before going into more of an old school death metal direction that has a heavy Swedish vibe to it and when the music speeds up blast beats and growling vocals are added into the music along with some elements of crust and grind.
All of the songs are very heavily rooted in the early 90's and the other track also brings in a small amount of horror move samples and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts, t he production sounds very old school and heavy while the lyrics cover horror, death, murder and zombies.
In my opinion Restos Humanos are a very great sounding mixture of death metal, crust and grind and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Muerte".
Next up is Cryptic Brood a band that has been featured before in this zine and plays an old school mixture of doom and death metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a very dark guitar riff which leads to a doom metal direction that also uses both growls and screams and the music also mixes in elements of early 90's death metal and also sticks to either a slow or mid paced musical direction while also speeding up at times and bringing in a small amount of blast beats, the production sounds very dark and old school while the lyrics cover Necromancy themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding track from Cryptic Brood and if you are a fan of doom and death metal, you should check out their side of the split.
In conclusion i feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of death, doom metal, crust and grindcore. 8 out of 10.
