REVIEW: “The Next Extreme” @ Bringer Of Death Zine

Schizoid  are  a  very  great  sounding  hybrid  of  black  metal,  industrial,  grindcore,  and  digital  hardcore  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  style,  you  should  check  out  this  band. RECOMMENDED BUY.

Schizoid  are  a  1  man  band  from  Ontario,  Canada  that plays  black  metal  mixed  in  with  some  influences  from  grindcore,  industrial,  and  digital  hardcore  and  this  is  a  review  of  their    2012  album  “The  New  Extreme”  which  was  released  by  D-Trash  Records.

Drum  programming  ranges  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  beats  with  some  programmed  blast  beats  which  also  mix  in  the  industrial,   gabber  and  digital  hardcore  influences,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  strong  and  powerful  tone  with  heavy  riffing  that  dominates  throughout  the  recording,  as  for  the  sound  effects  they  bring  in  elements  of  techno, gabber,  and  digital  hardcore  to  the  music.

Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  black  metal  riffs  that  also  have  a  good  amount  of  grindcore  and  industrial  metal  influences  being  thrown  into  the  riffing  and  there  are  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  present  on  this  recording.

Vocals  are  mostly  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  mixed  in  with  a  good  amount  of  industrial  style  vocals  and  spoken  word  samples,  while  the  lyrics  cover  violent  and  hateful  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  strong  and  powerful  sound  and  you  can  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  this  recording.

In  my  opinion  Schizoid  are  a  very  great  sounding  hybrid  of  black  metal,  industrial,  grindcore,  and  digital  hardcore  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  style,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  “The  Next  Extreme”  “Real  Evil”  “Life  Is  Struggle”  and  “Final  Descent”.  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
