The United Kingdom's Hunted play a grim style of Traditional Metal with some interesting twists on their debut album, Welcome the Dead. There are plenty of tempo changes, though I wouldn't call the album "progressive." Rather they simply change speeds often which makes the songs a bit tough to follow, but also somewhat unique. The music is straightforward Heavy Metal although it gets ramped up to Thrash speeds on occasion. Singer Chris G. sounds a lot like David Bower of fellow British band Hell. While not out of tune, he's all over the place with his high pitched screams and shouts. This gives Welcome the Dead a measure of similarity with Hell's Human Remains. The rest of the band members are sharp, but not overly remarkable, while the sound of the album is very good.
Human Remains wasn't my cup of tea; in large part due to the crazy vocals and chaotic song writing. Neither is Welcome the Dead. That said, this is very good for what it is and I give the band credit for NOT sounding like everyone else. If you like your Heavy Metal to be different from the mainstream give Welcome the Dead a listen.
