The World State are a band from Denmark that plays a very symphonic and avant garde form of metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 ep "Flier".
The ep starts out with a very dark and avant garde sound along with cellos and the music also starts bringing in traces of classical before adding in melodic female vocals and after a couple of minutes the recording turns into a mixture of metal and symphonic music and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
On the following tracks the band continues with their mixture of avant garde, symphonic and metal music and on the 3rd tracks blast beats, black, doom and death metal influences are brought into the music and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
With this ep The World State stick to mostly an avant garde and symphonic metal sound while also having the heaviness of death and doom metal at time s and the music is very original and has a sound of its own.
Song lyrics cover dark themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and dark sound for being a self released recording where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this ep.
In my opinion The World State are a very great sounding symphonic, avant garde metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Flier" and "Leave". 8 out of 10.
