Yautja are a band from Nashville, Tennessee that plays a mixture of death metal, grind and hardcore and this is a review of their 2014 album "Songs Of Descent" which was released by Forcefeild Recordings.
The album starts out with some drums and a few seconds alter bass guitars kick in which also leads up to some heavy guitars and once the album gets past the intro the music goes into a more death metal direction while adding in elements of hardcore to the vocals and by the time the third song comes on the music goes into a more grindcore direction along with some blast beats.
This album shows a great amount of diversity with the way they mix the heaviness of death metal, the speed of grindcore and the hardcore style vocals as well as mixing that influence in the slower or mid paced part of the guitar riffing and the band comes out with a very creative sound and by the time the 7th song comes around guitar leads are added into the music and they bring a darker sound to the recording as well as adding in elements of noise rock and the band utilizes a mixture of both slow and fast songs.
Song lyrics cover hateful and everyday themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Yautja are a very great sounding mixture of death metal, grind and hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Blinders" "Faith Resigned" "Of Descent" and "Chemical". RECOMMENDED BUY.
