Shin To Shin are a band from Cleveland, Ohio that plays a mixture of death metal, thrash and hardcore and this is a review of their self titled 2014 album which was released by A389 Recordings.
The album starts out with an intro which has a very heavy and dark sound to it along with solos and when it goes into the first song it keeps around a heavy sound while also adding in elements of hardcore along with death metal influenced vocals.
As the album moves on the music gets more up beat while also adding in melody as well as some thrash metal influenced guitar solos as well as a small amount of punk elements and d beats and on one of the songs there is a brief use of melodic vocals and the last song is an acoustic instrumental.
On this album Shin To Shin combine early 90's death metal and hardcore with 80s thrash to create an album that is very powerful and heavy sounding while also having an old school sound to them.
Song lyrics cover hateful and everyday themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound along with the bass guitars being mixed down low in the mix.
In my opinion Shin To Shin are a very great sounding mixture of death metal, thrash and hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Extinction" "Costumes And Masks" and "Stand Up And Shout". 8 out of 10.
