This is another review of a recording from Sleestak with the musical style being a very heavy and psychedelic form of doom metal with the album being self released in 2011 and called "The Fall Of Altrusia".
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 elements 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 to mid paced doom metal riffs that are very dark and heavy sounding with elements of death, sludge, stoner, post metal and psychedelic being thrown into the riffing at times to create a sound of their own as well as some clean playing, while the lead guitars are very psychedelic sounding metal/rock guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars they use finger picking and full chords to enhance the 60's and 70's rock elements of the album.
Vocals range from deep death metal growls to clean singing, while the song lyrics are a concept album about The Fall Of Altrusia, 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 album along with some of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Sleestak and if you are a fan of heavy, psychedelic doom metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "In The Beginning" "The Marshall Prophecy" and "Pakuni Shaman Chant Of The Altrusian Moth". RECOMMENDED BUY.
