Snailking are a band from Sweden that plays a very heavy form of sludge/drone/doom metal and this is a review of their 2012 ep "Samsara" which was released by ConSouling Sounds.
Drums are all slow playing with no fast drumming or blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars are all slow riffs that combine sludge, drone and doom metal together to create a sound of their own with some dark sounding melodies being thrown into the riffing at times, while the lead guitars when they are utilized are very dark sounding doom metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals range from aggressive sounding clean singing doom metal vocals along with some deep growls, high pitched screams and spoken word samples, while the lyrics cover dark and depressing themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy, dark, and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording with the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Snailking are a very great sounding hybrid of drone, doom and sludge metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Samsara". RECOMMENDED BUY. "
