Brainoil are a band from Oakland, California that plays a sludge/crust style of doom/death metal and this is a review of their 2011 album "Death Of This Dry Season" which was released by 20 Buck Spin Records.
Drums range from slow, midpaced with some fast drumming and blast beats, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they sound very powerful.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, midpaced , to sludge/doom metal riffs that are very distorted and have somewhat of a stoner vibe to them with the faster riffing having a punk rock feel to them while the lead guitars when utilized are very distorted sounding guitar leads.
Vocals are all high -pitched sludge metal screams with some ocassional deep crust/grind/hardcore growls, while the lyrics touch on dark and hateful thmes, as for the production it has a very heavy and raw feel to it.
In my opinion Brainoil are a very good crust/grind/sludge metal metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Death Of This Dry Season" "To Bury The Pages Of Existence" and "The Beauty Of Death". RECEMMONDED BUY.
