Blighter are a band from Colorado Springs, Colorado that plays a mixture of crust, grind, sludge and doom metal and this is a review of t heir self titled and self released 2011 ep.
The ep starts out with am radio sounds before going into a slow, dark and heavy doom metal sound and a minute later deep death metal growls are added into the music which also leads to the music going into a more fast crust/grind direction along with some high pitched screams and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
After awhile the music returns back to a slower sound while also bringing in stoner style melodies and on the last song the music returns back to a faster crust/grind sound while also mixing in the slow doom parts as well as bringing in a brief guitar solos that would fit in just fine on an early Black Sabbath record.
Blighter take the heaviest and darkest elements of stoner, sludge and doom metal and mix it in with the speed and crust in certain sections and it results in a very dark, heavy and interesting sounding recording.
Song lyrics cover dark themes, while the production has a very dark and heavy 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 Blighter are a very great sounding mixture of stoner, doom metal, crust and grind and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Wolv". 8 out of 10.
