Gadget are a band from Sweden that plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in crust and grindcore but also mix in elements of black metal, doom, sludge, hardcore and death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "The Great Destroyer" which will be released in March by Relapse Records.
A very heavy sound with high pitched screams, death metal growls and blast beats start off the album along with d beats and most of the tracks are very short in length and you can also hear some melodies being thrown in the riffing at times along with some black metal elements and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful to them.
When the music slows down a lot of sludge and doom metal elements can be heard and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts ans as the album guitar leads and solos can be heard in certain sections of the recording and the whole album also remains from beginning to end.
Gadget plays a very aggressive style of crust/grindcore which they also mix in with a bit of black, death metal, doom, sludge and hardcore which gives the music more of an original style, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover death and violence themes.
In my opinion Gadget are a very great sounding mixture of grindcore, crust, black, death metal, doom, sludge and hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Pillars Of Filth" "Dedication" "Lost On A Straight Path" and "I Don't Need You-Dead And Gone". 8 out of 10.
