Martyr - _Ostrogoth_
by: Adam Wasylyk (4 out of 5)
ANOTHER band from Montreal, Martyr's demo _Ostrogoth_ is more on the technical side of death metal rather than focusing on blinding speed and blazing guitars. The band also featuring clean male vocals (which aren't that impressive), the bulk of the music on the three tracks ("Prototype", "Ars Nova" and the title track) is slow-paced with intricate guitaring and drums. It also sounds like there's an 80s metal influence in some of the songs (particularly in the first track "Prototype"). The vocal style is rough/gruff but not as low as your standard death metal outfit which I felt is a good decision to accompany this sort of music. Releasing an independent album early next year, I look forward to hearing their future work (to be hopefully reviewed in a future issue).
