Buckshot Facelift are a band from New York that p0lays a mixture of death metal, grindcore, and power violence and this is a review of their 2017 album "Ulcer Island" which will be released in April by Paragon Records.
Spoken word samples start off the album before going into a very fast and brutal grindcore direction that also uses a great amount of blast beats along with vocals that bring in a mixture of death metal growls and crust style shouting and the music also mixes in a great amount of power violence elements.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while high pitched screams are also utilized at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the guitar leads are done in a melodic fashion along with some of the tracks being short in length and spoken word samples also return in certain sections of the recording and some of the riffing also adds in a small amount of melody and there is also a brief use of acoustic guitars and a later track also adds in a touch of black metal.
Buckshot Facelift plays a musical style that takes death metal, grindcore, and power violence and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover violent and angry themes.
In my opinion Buckshot Facelift are a very great sounding mixture of death metal, grindcore, and power violence and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ulcer Island" "Ascend To Descend" "Don't Hang From The Pipes" and "A Trophy Cup Intoxicant". 8 out of 10.
