Toscrew are a band from Hungary that has a couple of their releases reviewed in this zine which where more in the atmospheric doom/death metal vein but evolved more into a traditional doom metal/hard rock band with this new recording and this is a review of their self released 2012 ep "Crawl".
Drums range from slow to mid paced drumming with not much in the way of fast playing or blast beats on this recording, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with riffs that dominate throughout this recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced riffs that combine traditional doom metal and 70s hard rock together along with some melodic riffing while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding guitar solos and leads, as for the synths which are only utilized briefly on one song they bring a very dark and atmospheric sound to the music.
Vocals are all clean singing vocals with none of the death metal growls of their older material except for maybe a few parts, while the lyrics are written in English this time with themes that cover dark themes, 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 this is another great recording from Toscrew and while some of their older fans might not be into this is much since they changed their style around alot, but if you like traditional doom metal or regular hard rock you will enjoy this. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Crawl" and "bad trip". RECOMMENDED BUY.
