Eaten are a band from Worcester, Massachusetts that plays a mixture of doom, death metal and grindcore and this is a review of their self titled 2017 album which will be released in August by Give Praise Records.
A very fast and brutal grindcore sound starts off the album along with a great amount of blast beats and death metal growls as well as the music incorporating a great amount of power violence elements and most of the tracks are very short in length while you can still hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
Most of the tracks are very short in length while the slow riffs are very heavily influenced by doom metal and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the riffs also utilize a small mount of melody and melodic guitar leads are also used briefly and the fast riffs also use a great amount of tremolo picking and the music always remains very heavy and brutal.
Eaten plays a musical style that takes grindcore and power violence and mixes it with death and doom metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover violent and hateful themes.
In my opinion Eaten are a very great sounding mixture of doom, death metal, power violence and grindcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Bloodline" "Dispute" "Blindfold" and "Universal Plague". 8 out of 10.
