Pray U Prey are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a mixture of death metal, grindcore, and crust and this is a review of their 2017 album "Figure The 8" which was released by Selfmadegod Records.
A very heavy and aggressive grindcore sound starts off the album and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard along with a great amount of high pitched screams and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody and there is also a lot of old school death metal elements on the recording.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and movie samples can also be heard at times and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and the songs also mix in a great amount of crust influences and one track also brings in a brief use of ambient style synths before returning back to a heavier direction while none of the songs ever use any guitar solos or leads.
Pray U Prey plays a musical style that takes death metal, grindcore and crust and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion Pray U Prey are a very great sounding mixture of death metal, grindcore, and crust and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Figure The 8" "Psychodrame Peepshow" "Suffering Rules The World" and "Halo Of Lies". 8 out of 10.
