Cranula are a band from Brazil that has been featured before in this zine and plays an a mixture of death metal, grindcore and crust and this is a review of their self released 2015 ep "Human Savage".
Experimental sounds start off the ep and a few seconds later the music starts to get heavier and also brings in death metal growls as well as speeding up and adding in blast beats and melodies which also gives the music more of a grindcore feeling and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Elements of crust can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and when solos and leads are utilized they bringing an early 90's style of deathgrind to the songs they are utilized on and some of the riffs also add a touch of thrash to the recording and all of the songs remain true to a heavy musical style and the last track closes with ritualistic chanting.
Cranula this time around adds in more death metal elements while still keeping around their mixture of grind and crust from previous releases, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Cranula and if you are a fan of crust, grindcore and death metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Carjacking" and "Poison". 8 out of 10.
