Killtek – Remains of Society (Review)

KilltekKilltek are a Norwegian metal band and this is their latest EP.

This is industrial-tinged metal with a good sound and plenty of professional delivery.

Stylistically somewhere between Fear Factory, Lamb of God, and Pantera, this EP is a solid hit of aggressive metal.

The industrial aspects of the songs are represented by additional keyboards, samples, and sounds, all done to enhance the main parts of the music. Each of the songs is well-written and tears its way through its playing time with chugging riffs and plenty of double bass drums.

The keyboards and some of the leads help add a more emotive side to the music’s riff-heavy mechanistic approach. Sometimes the band end up producing something quite layered and complex, which can be compared to other times when they favour a more simplistically brutal approach.

The production is fierce and heavy, showing off Killtek’s heavy side nicely. Not that they have too much of a softer one, mind.

The vocals are predominantly raging shouts and screams, occasionally augmented by some clean singing here and there.

Remains of Society is an enjoyable enough affair for anyone who likes to hear heavy music with a good sound and plenty of cyber-style.
