SPARROWS   
"MARK OF THE BEAST: INDOCTRINATION"
VILE AMUSEMENT RECORDS

With the name like SPARROWS, I wasn't expecting such a dark and heavy sound, but I am
sure glad that's what I got.
SPARROWS is a Death Metal band from Texas that formed back
in 2010. These guys plant themselves deeply in the Death Metal genre, but they heavily
infuse it with Black Metal influences. There is a cold darkness that blankets their sound,
which is where the Black Metal influences come into play. These guys are on a mission to
rid the world of Christ with their music and after one listen to "MARK OF THE BEAST:
INDOCTRINATION" I'd say they are well on their way. The music has a crisp yet raw
style that reminds me of a lot of European bands of the same style that were coming out of
the 90's. There is a grittiness to their sound at times, which also has to do with the Black
Metal influences. I really like the way they merged the thick low ended Death Metal growls
with some rough almost screechy Black Metal type screams. These guys lie right on that line
of Death & Black Metal that would pull in fans of both styles. Fans of
BEHEMOTH,
HYPOCRISY, DEICIDE, CARNAGE, DECAPITATED, SINISTER
& CATTLE
DECAPITATION
will love these guys! A simple looking cover and simple name, but there
is nothing simple about this bands music or message. This is one well worth checking out!
