Lauderdale are a project from Canada that has members of Fuck The Facts with a music style that mixes doom metal, sludge, grindcore and noise rock together and this is a review of their self titled 2008 album "life's A Beach" which was released by Ghetto Blaster Recordings.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown in at times, while the synths bring a very dark avant garde and noise/experiemental sound to the music, as for the bass playing it has a very strong and powerful tone with riffs that dominate throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine influences from doom metal, sludge, grindcore and noise rock together along with some dark sounding melodies to create a sound of their own, while the lead guitars when they are utilized are very noisy, primitive and chaotic sounding guitar leads and solos.
Vocals range from clean singing, spoken word parts and high pitched sludge/grindcore screams along with a great amount of samples, while the lyrics cover dark and hateful themes with the song titles being named after bands, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Lauderdale are a very great sounding doom/sludege/grind/noise rock and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Better Than Ezra" "Seven Mary Three" "Tonic" and "Gin Blossoms". RECOMMENDED BUY.
