Massive Assault are a band from the Netherlands that plays a very brutal form of death metal mixed with d beat crustcore and this is a review of their 2012 album "Death Strike" which was released by FDA Rekotz.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown in, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with riffs that dominate throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast Sedish style death metal riffs that are very heavy and brutal sounding with a good amount of thrash and d beat influences and dark melodies, while the lead guitars are very dark death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls with some high pitched screams and samples, while the lyrics cover dark and hateful themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.
In my opinion Massive Assault are a very great sounding Swedish style brutal death metal/d beat/crust band band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Driven Towards Death" "Finished Sympathy" "Dismal Life" and "Chained". RECOMMENDED BUY.
