Keitzer are a band from Germany that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of death metal, grind, crust and hardcore and this is a review of their 2008 album "As The World Burns" which was released by 7 Degrees Records.
A very fast and brutal sound starts off the album along with some blast beats and death/grind style growls and the band also brings in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them as well as the band utilizing a great amount of melody.
The bands musical style on this album is a lot more closer to brutal death metal than the newer material while also having a great amount of crust and grind being mixed in with their style and there are no guitar solos or leads present anywhere on the recording with the band focusing more on a very heavy and brutal musical sound and there is never a soft moment to be found anywhere on any of the tracks.
With this recording Keitzer played more of a brutal style of death/grind which was still heavily influenced by crust and hardcore and this album is brutal from beginning to end while also having its melodic moments at times, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark, violent and hateful themes.
In my opinion this was a very great sounding recording from Keitzer and if you are a fan of their newer material and want to hear their past material, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Corporation' "Doom Shall Rise" "This Life" and "No Justice, No Peace". 8 out of 10.
