Marginal are a band from Belgium that plays a mixture of grindcore and crust and this is a review of their 2017 album "Total Destruction" which will be rleeased in December by Transcending Obscurity Records.
Drum beats along with a very brutal grindcore sound starts off the album while t he vocals are mostly death metal growls while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a decent amount of blast beats as well as the music being very heavily influenced by d beat and crust and guitar leads are also used at times.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while high pitched screams are also used at times along with the music being very heavily rooted in the 90's but also sounding very modern at the same time and as the album progresses a brief use of angry punk rock style shouts can be heard and most of the tracks are very short in length, spoken word samples are also added on one track and the music always remains heavy.
Marginal plays a musical style that takes grindcore, crust and d beat and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover violent and political themes.
In my opinion Marginal are a very great sounding mixture of grindcore and crust and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Barbarians" "Impaled" "This Violent Way" and "Total Destruction". 8 out of 10.
