This is a review of another recording from Sleestak with the musical style this time arounf being an instrumental hybrid of doom metal, sludge, psychedelic and space rock with the album being self released in 2012 and called "A Lo-Fi Collection Of Psychedelia and Space Rock".
Drums range from slow to mid paced playing with no fast playing or blast beats being present on this recording, while 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 riffs that combine doom metal, sludge, space rock and psychedelic together to create a sound of their own with some clean playing or melody being thrown into the riffing, while the lead guitars are very melodic and tripped out 70's psychedelic rock guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars they use finger picking and full chords to bring in progressive rock elements to the album.
Vocals and songwriting are mostly absent form this recording with the music being all instrumental except for one song and they have a sound that reminds me of Cathedral as well as a brief use of spoken word parts, while the song themes cover Altrusian fiction, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy, dark and professional sound for being a self released recording where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording with most of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Sleestak and if you are a fan of doom metal mixed with psychedelia and space rock, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Phase 2" and "Phase 5". RECOMMENDED BUY.
