Little Sister are a band from Cleveland, Ohio that plays a mixture of crust, grind, melodic death metal and hardcore and this is a review of t heir self titled 2012 ep which was released by Replenish Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine crust, grind, melodic death metal and hardcore together to create a sound of their own, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding crust/hardcore guitar solos and leads with some death metal elements, as for the acoustic guitars they are only utilized briefly and use finger picking and full chords to add more dark elements to the ep.
Vocals range from high pitched crust/grind screams to deep death metal growls, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and dark sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Little Sister are a very great sounding hybrid of crust, grind, melodic death metal and hardcore and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ancient Minds/Ignorant Ways" and "Osaka Death Poems". RECOMMENDED BUY.
