Drunk Dad are a band from Portland, Oregon that plays a mixture of sludge and noise and this is a review of their 2013 12 inch "Morbid Reality" which was released by Eolian Empire.
Drums range from slow to mid paced 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, as for the sound effects when t hey are utilized they bring elements of drone and noise to the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced riffs that combine heavy sludge metal and noise together to create a sound of their own along with a brief use of soft and clean playing which brings in the experimental elements, while the lead guitars are very dark sounding noise rock guitar solos and leads.
Vocals range from spoken word parts, clean singing to high pitched screams which has a crust/grind feeling to them as well as some deep growls, while the lyrics cover dark and hateful 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 with one of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Drunk Dad are a very great sounding hybrid of sludge and noise and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Guts" and "Scum Fee". RECOMMENDED BUY.
