Gian are a band from Finland that plays a mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "All Life Erased" which will be released on February 20th by Inverse Music.
Weird sound effects start off the album along with some reverb noise and spoken word samples before going into more of a heavy and raw death/thrash metal direction along with some technical riffs and growls and you can also hear a decent amount of groove in the bands musical style and you can hear a great amount of high pitched screams in the songs mixing with the growls.
A lot of the riffs incorporate a great amount of melody while the faster sections utilize a great amount of blast beats along with a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the solos and leads the band uses are very melodic and have an old school death metal feeling to them and some of the tracks also bring in clean singing vocals at times.
The death and thrash metal elements of the recording are in more of a modern direction while you can still hear a bit of some old school influences in the bands musical style and as the album progresses the music starts incorporating more hardcore and punk elements and the whole album sticks to a very heavy, brutal and aggressive musical direction.
Gain takes both the old school and modern styles of death and thrash metal and combine them together along with some elements of groove, punk and metalcore to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark, violent and hateful themes.
In my opinion Gian are a very great sounding mixture of death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Bloodstorm" "Self-Immolation Party" "Aggression Unleashed" and "Capital Punishment". 8 out of 10.
