Exhale are a band from Sweden that plays a mixture of crust, grindcore and death metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "When Worlds Collide" which was released by Pulverised Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming along with a great amount of brutal sounding blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very strong, powerful and heavy sound along with some primitive and powerful sounding riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffing that combines crust, grind and brutal death metal together to create a sound of their own as well as a brief use of post hardcore style melodies being utilized in certain sections of the album and in one song you can hear a few seconds of sludge and stoner rock elements being utilized, guitar leads or solos anywhere on this album with the music being all heavy and brutal.
Vocals range from crust style, shouts, grindcore screams and there is also a brief use of spoken word samples on some songs, while the lyrics cover violent and apocalyptic themes along with the songs being written in a mixture of Swedish and English, 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 recording along with one of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Exhale are a very great sounding hybrid of crust, grind, hardcore and brutal death metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Wrath Unleashed" "Barriers Of Blood" "Glorify The Dumb" and "Illusions". RECOMMENDED BUY.
