Mumakil are a band from Switzerland that plays a very heavy and brutal sounding hybrid of death, grind and crust and this is a review of their 2013 album "Flies Will Starve" which was released by Relapse Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some brutal sounding blast beats being thrown into the music at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that are very heavy and brutal sounding combining death metal, crust and grindcore together to create a sound of their own and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals range from deep death metal growls to high pitched grindcore screams, while the lyrics cover warfare, death, violence and anti authoritarianism, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.
In my opinion Mumakil are a very great sounding hybrid of grindcore, crust and death metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dawn Of Slugs" "Designed to Fail" "Waste By Definition" and "Behind The Mask". RECOMMENDED BUY.
