Theories are a band from Seattle, Washington that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of death metal, grindcore, crust and power violence and this is a review of their 2015 album "Regression" which will be released on March 24th by Metal Blade Records.
A very dark and heavy death metal sound starts off the album before going into more of a fast crust/grindcore direction which also utilizes high pitched screams and blast beats and you can also h ear a decent amount of melody in the bands musical style along with a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
At times the music can be very technical with the riffs without losing the raw crust and grind approach and after awhile deep death metal growls can be heard in certain sections of the recording and all of t he songs avoid using any solos and leads and focuses more on a modern style of death/grind.
Theorie s creates a very modern death/grind album that also bring s in a touch of crust and power violence which also makes their songs have a bit more originality to them, the production sound s very professional while the lyrics cover social discontentment, economic uncertainty, environmental catastrophes, and the inevitable cycle of decay.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Theories and if you are a fan of death metal, grindcore, crust and power violence, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Burnt Concrete" "Abortive Crescent" "Swimming In Mud" and "Landfill". 8 out of 10.
