Frantic Aggressor are a band from Germany that plays a raw mixture of black and thrash metal and this is a review of their self released 2019 "Land Mine Logic".
A very distorted sounding intro starts off the album along with a brief use of spoken word samples before going into a heavier musical direction. When the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling.
All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams. Elements of thrash metal can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording while the riffs also utilizing a decent amount of melody and the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
The music also adds in a good amount of both old school and modern influences and as the album progresses spoken word samples make a brief return before going back to a heavier direction. The production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover nihilism, misanthropy and violence themes.
In my opinion Frantic Aggressor are a very great sounding raw mixture of black and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Traces" "The Wanderer" and "Final Spasms Of A Dying Multiverse". 8 out of 10.
