Radiation Sickness are a band from Indiana that has a history that goes back to the 80's with a musical style that combines death metal, grind, crust, crossover and thrash and this is a review of their 2012 album "Reflections Of A Psychotic Past" which was released by Abyss Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with heavy riffs that dominate throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine elements of death metal, crust, grind, crossover and thrash together to create a sound of their own with a good amount of melody being thrown into the riffing, while the lead guitars are underground 80's metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly high pitched death/thrash screams mixed in with some deep death metal growls as well as a brief use of clean singing, while the lyrics cover hateful and everyday themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this on this recording.
In my opinion Radiation Sickness are a very great sounding hybrid of death metal, grind, crust, crossover and thrash and if you are a fan of this style of music, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Reflections Of A Psychotic Past" "Graveside View" "Escape To Insanity" and "Demented Love Song". RECOMMENDED BUY.
