This is another review of a self released recording from Afterlife Kids with the musical style being being a mixture of screamo and power violence and the ep was released in 2012 and called "Geisterhand".
The music starts out with some drum beats and slow guitars before going into a fast crust/grind direction as well as mixing in screams and then emo and screamo elements get mixed in as well as some death metal growls and the music utilizes a great amount of blast beats and as time goes on by hardcore elements are added into the music as well as some emo type of vocals but not having a melodic edge to them.
Once the ep gets into the 4th song clean guitars and spoken word parts are added in and then going into a slow yet heavy direction and it leads to a return of the fast crust/grind this ep has a lot of and it mixes in the grind with slower hardcore breakdowns and halfway through the recording melodic vocals are finally added in briefly.
Once the ep goes into the last song it starts adding in more drone and experimental elements and as time goes on by it starts adding in harsh noise and power electronics to bring a very dark sounding end to the ep.
Song lyrics are written in German and cover hateful and everyday themes, while the production has a very raw and heavy sound with the bass guitars being mixed down low in the mix as well as the last song being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Afterlife Kids and if you are a fan of screamo mixed with power violence and harsh noise, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Geisterhand" and "Sorgenkind". RECOMMENDED BUY.
