Review: Prevail - War Will Reign

I am really into death metal and all of its subgenres and I am always excited when I get told about or find a new death metal band which has some interesting details in it. Prevail does bring something not really new in death metal, but the way they did their direction in death metal is unique. They combine groove metal with death metal, imagine Pantera style of groove with older incarnations of Morbid Angel from Covenant and Altars, while at the same time the vocals are going in a more modern death metal tendencies and are almost exclusively guttural vocals.

The recording quality is over the top, as the album does not suffer from the symptoms of modern death metal where the vocals make up 50% of the mix and the rest of the instruments are heard in a turn basis. The guitars are sharp and cut through the mix even in the solos both rhythm and lead guitars are heard clearly. The drums are played with professionalism and the drum sound is mixed well in the mix, even the kick drums are heard all of the time, and there is no point in the album where the bass guitar and the bass drum sound the same. As I said, the vocals do not make up 50% of the mix, and with the style of vocals used on the record do justice, as even with the most harsh technique you can still hear and understand what the vocalist is singing.

All in all, I love this album and I do believe that the band has a bright future in the death metal world.
