Marder are a band from Poland that plays a raw mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2019 ep "Chaos" which was released by Nailed Nazarene Industries.
Clean playing starts off the ep before going into a heavier musical direction while the riffs also add in some dark sounding melodies. During the faster sections of the songs a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the music more of a raw feeling.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. Vocals bring in a mixture of grim black metal screams and deep death emtal growls while the songs also adding in a decent amount of 90's influences along with all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them and all of the music also sticks to a heavier direction.
Marder plays a musical style that is very heavily rooted in the 90's era as well as mixing in some elements of death metal to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Marder are a very great sounding raw mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Frozen Kingdom" and "Mirrovr - Part I". 8 out of 10.
