Old school death metal meets thrash metal. Man, if death metal had stayed this musically proficient rather than getting overly concerned with being 'as brutal as possible' I would have remained a follower of the the style. Lithotstrotos, while having the downtuned guitars and death-like vocals, are a bit more accessible than most death bands because their music is not a bunch of blastbeats. For the most part the music is mid-paced, retains a certain groove and even has a sense of melody, something many death metal bands are missing. Lyrically Lithostrotos are a proud Christian band, although they present their ideas in a thought provoking manner rather than the stereotypical 'turn or burn' approach. The unlisted track sounds like a traditional German song revised in a metal format. Anyone know what the name of this song is?
