Duskburn are a band from Croatia that plays a mixture of sludge and doom metal along with some death metal elements and this is a review of their 2014 ep "Atum" which will be released by Cimmerian Shade Recordings.
"Between The Swarm" which is also the first song on the ep opens up with dark sounding synths and a few seconds alter drums start to kick in along with some experimental elements which also leads up to heavy guitar and bass riffs and as time goes on by guitar leads are added into the music before bringing in death metal growls and as time goes on by you can also hear elements of drone as well as some spoken word samples towards the end
"Atum" begins with clean guitar playing along with some drums and a minute later heavy guitar riffs start to get along along with some hardcore and sludge style vocals before alternating between clean and heavy parts as well as bringing in sound effects and towards the end there is a brief use of guitar solos and leads.
"Seemless" which is also the last song on the ep starts up with heavy guitar riffs and a few seconds later heavy guitar riffs along with hardcore and death metal style vocals kick in and as the song moves on you can hear bass guitars, melody and spoken word parts and towards the end guitar leads are added in.
Song lyrics cover dark and occult themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording as well as the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Duskburn are a very great sounding sludge/doom metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Between The Swarm". RECOMMENDED BUY.
