Byzantine
The Cicada Tree
Company: Metal Blade
Release: 2017
Genre: Death
Reviewer: Greg Watson
Published: 8/2/2017

From the foothills of West Virginia, Byzantine roars to life once more
COMMENTS:
Combining elements of thrash, death, hardcore, and prog metal, Byzantine has a distinct sound that is equal parts beauty and destruction. Crushing, groove-laden riffs meld with clean, precise playing and gives you this incredible Jekyll/Hyde sound. Clean and growled vocals add to the back and forth and the production pulls all of this together in a powerful finished package. Definitely a different sound from many bands out there, you won't be disappointed checking "The Cicada Tree" out.
