It’s always nice to know when bands try something different, and it’s even better to know that said band pulled it off exceedingly well. And that is apparently what Prayed and Betrayed has done with their new EP “The Abundance of a Sickened Mind” that has (according to the email they sent me) a style that “has changed from the traditional death metal to a more technical and melodic heading” which is fine by me in any case I like death and melodic metal so this band can’t really go wrong for me. The band managed to pull off this transition very well and that makes this EP a really good listen. The vocals have a real strained sound to them that makes each song sound hardcore along with the guitars that do just the same by playing notes and doing riffs that do a very good job of sounding hardcore and keeping the rhythm throughout the whole EP. And the drums do a fantastic job of have an unrelenting beat the entire time. Overall, “The Abundance of a Sickened Mind” is a really good melodic/death metal EP that I’ve no doubt will astound many people because of its awesomeness.
