Sleestak are a band from Milwaukee, Wisconsin that played a mixture of doom, death metal, sludge, stoner, psychedelic and space rock on this recording and this is a review of their self released 2010 album "Skylon Express" which consists of the ep's "Library of Skulls" and "Skylon Express".
Drums range from slow to mid paced playing with no fast drumming or blast beats being present on this recording, while the sound effects bring the psychedelic, space and 70's rock influences to the album, 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, mid paced to fast riffs that combine doom, death metal, sludge, stoner, psychedelic and space rock together to create a sound of t heir own along with some melody and clean playing, while the lead guitars are very psychedelic sounding stoner rock guitar solos and leads.
Vocals range from clean singing, spoken word parts and deep death metal growls, while the lyrics cover Altrusion fiction, 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 most of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Sleestak are a v ery great sounding hybrid of doom, death metal, stoner, sludge, psychedelic and space rock and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Skylon Express" Library Of Skulls" and "Sleestak Wardance". RECOMMENDED BUY.
