Atacama Death Experience are a band from Italy that plays a mixture of sludge, doom, crust and blues and this is a review of their 2013 ep "Wasted Times And Broken Bones" which was released by Cimmerian Shade Recordings.
The ep starts out with some blues style sounds before adding in powerful bass guitars which are heavily influenced by 70s metal and rock as well as some melodic vocals which adds up to bringing in a classic rock feeling to the recording and then the heavy guitars really start to kick in as well as some deep growl and screams.
As the album moves on southern swamp style melodies are added into the music along with some guitar leads that evoke a stoner rock feeling and as time goes on by there are some spoken word parts that bring a very hateful feeling to the music as well as some faster parts that bring in crust elements.
Later on the music starts adding in psychedelic elements with the heavier doom parts and as time goes on by the screams get even more sounding having a black metal feeling to them without being influenced by that genre, but they do take the sludge style of Eyehategod to a darker level and the guitars get even more dirty and blues rock sounding and they created an original approach to sludge/doom metal, and on the last song you can hear some percussion and the melodic vocals make a return and then the music really starts getting a lot more heavier.
Song lyrics cover decay and anarchy, while the production has a very strong, powerful, dark and heavy sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording along with the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Atacame Death Experience are a very great sounding mixture of doom metal, sludge, crust and blues and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Useless Blues" and "Wasted Times And Broken Bones". RECOMMENDED BUY.
