King Parrot are a band from Australia that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of thrash, grind, punk and hardcore and this is a review of their 2015 album "Dead Set" which was released by Agonia Records.
A very heavy grindcore sound starts off the album along with some blast beats before mixing in elements of thrash and high pitched screams along with a decent amount of melody and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the music also mixes in hardcore style back up gang vocals at times.
Death metal growls can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording along with some riffs that also mix thrash and punk together and the music also can get very brutal at times and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and when solos and leads are utilized they bring an old school extreme metal feeling to the recording. and all of the songs stick to a very heavy musical direction and the last track is very long and epic in length.
King Parrot creates another album that takes the elements of hardcore, grind, punk and thrash to create some music that has an old school foundation but done with a more modern sound, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover angry and real life themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from King Parrot and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Need No Savor" "Like A Rat" "Sick In the Head" and "Dead Set". 8 out of 10.
