Sonic Poison are a band from Finland that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays a mixture of thrash, death metal, crust and grindcore and this is a review of their 2018 ep "Combat Grind" which was released by Caligari Records.
A very heavy thrash sound starts off the ep along with some screaming vocals while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along w ith a great amount of d beat and crust elements as well as a brief use of spoken word parts adn when t he music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
Vocals are mostly mid 80's style death metal growls while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of grindcore elements along with the solos and leads also sticking to an old school style of extreme metal as well as the riffs also bringing in a small amount of melody and all of the tracks are very short in length and the vocals also add in hardcore style shouts at times.
Sonic Poison creates another recording that remains true to their mixture of thrash, death metal, crust and grindcore, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover nuclear war, apocalypse, politics and death themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Sonic Poison and if you are a fan of thrash, death metal, crust and grindcore, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Straight To Hell" and "Nausea". 8 out of 10.
