Dead Medusa are a band from Columbia, Missouri that plays a blackened mixture of death and cosmic thrash with a touch of traditional metal and this is a review of their 2017 ep "Riff City" which would be released in September.
Distorted amp sounds start off t he ep before going into a heavier thrash metal direction along with some screams that also gives the music more of an 80's death metal feeling while also sounding very modern at the same time along with the riffs also bringing in a great amount of melody.
All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the leads also sticking to a very old school metal style and elements of black and traditional metal are also utilized at times and one of the tracks is very long and epic in length and the music always remains heavy and spoken word parts are added onto the closing track.
Dead Medusa plays a musical style that mixes both the modern and old school styles of death and thrash metal along with black metal and a touch of traditional metal to create a sound of t heir own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion Dead Medusa are a very great sounding blackened mixture of death and cosmic thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tunnel Vision" and "Riff City". 8 out of 10.
