Paralysis where a band from New Orleans, Louisiana, that played a mixture of death metal with a blackened edge and grindcore and this is areview of their 1993 album "Patrons Of The Dark" which was released by Grind Core International.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a goood amount of blast beats being thrown in at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with riffs that dominate throughout the recording, as for the synths which are only utilized on the last song they have a very dark sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast death metal riffs that also utilize influences from black metal and grindcore, and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on this recording, as for the acoustic guitars which are only used on the last song they use finger picking to add another dimension of darkness to the music.
Vocals are mostly deep death growls mixed in with some ocassional high pitched black metal screams, while the lyrics cover Gore, Death, Occultism, Sumerian Mythology and H.P Lovecraft themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion Paralysis where a very good raw and primitive sounding death/grind/black metal band band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE ""Scorched By Demons" "Patrons Of The Dark" "Mausoleum" and "Gates Reflected". RECEMMONDED BUY.
