Fluwid/From Surface To Suffocation/Mortal Music/2010 CD Review

Fluwid are a band from Ohio that plays melodic death metal with a hardcore edge that has a small amount of a black metal edge and this is a review of their debut album "From Surface To Suffocation" which was released by Mortal Music inc during the year of 2010.

Drums range from slow to midpaced drumming with some blast beats and fast playing being utilized at times, while the bass playing follows the riffs that are coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars are mostly melodic death metal riffs that have some influences from thrash metal, power metal and hardcore as well, while the lead guitars when they are used are very melodic without alot of guitar solos being used except for a few ocassions on some of the songsm and when they are utilized they bing in alot of classic metal influences.

Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls with a good mixture of hardcore growling along with alot of clean vocals and the ocassional high pitched black metal scream being used at times, while the lyrics touch on alot of emotional topics, as for the production it sounds very professional and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this album.

In my opinion Fluwid are a good band for this style and while sometimes the music gets a little bit too commercial for my taste, I still feel this is a good band and a solid modern metal release, if you are a fan of melodic death metal or the more screamo style of metal you should probably like this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Foever" "The Phoenix" and "Face Down In A Shallow Grave". RECOMMENDED
