Drug Honkey are a band from New York that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style I would describe as being experimental sludge/doom metal with death metal influences and this is a review of their 2012 album "Ghost In The Fire" which was released by Transcending Obscurity".
Drums range from slow to mid paced playing with no fast drumming or blast beats being present on this recording, while the synths and samples bring a very dark, experimental and industrial sound to the recording, as for the bass playing it has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced heavy riffs that combine sludge, doom and death metal together to create a sound of their own, and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are mostly deep doom/sludge metal growls and screams with some industrial style vocals and death and black metal influences as well as some spoken word parts, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and dark sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Drug Honkey and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Order Of The Solar Temple" "Weight Of The World" "Five Years Up" and "Twitcher". RECOMMENDED BUY.
