Review: Caecus - Affliction

This is one of the shortest EP's I have heard or reviewed in my life, but even despite the EP's length it doesn't lack in brutality or intricateness of the riffs. The overall sound of the EP is more inclined towards the black metal school of recording, not the best kind of quality but it didn't take away from the greatness of the EP.

The guitar work is absolutely solid and more going towards the brutal death metal sound of Suffocation, but when combined it does really go into the territory of Dying Fetus. The drums are solid, the only thing that got my attention is the snare drum. It really does grind through the mix and pulls into a grindcore sounding snares with high volumes and straight through clear sound. The bass isn't really audible, but since the guitars has a lot of compression that may be the reason the bass can't be heard. The vocals are also a great addiction, but like the other instruments it does have a bit too much of compression and you can’t really understand what the vocalist is singing.

Overall this EP can make a great future for this band, if they can make a album like this with a little more attention to the recording quality, and I give this EP 7/10.
