The album starts out with distorted reverb before going into a heavier direction along with some powerful sounding bass and rhythm guitars which take the music into a sludge/doom metal direction which also leads up to a mixture of screams and growls and you can also hear a good amount of melody in the recording along with some guitar leads.
When we get more into the album you can hear some clean and acoustic guitars in certain sections of the recording along with a small amount of prog and post metal elements as well as a small amount of psychedelia and they also bring in a couple of instrumentals and as time goes on by you can hear crustcore influences being added into the music and on the last track drones are added into the song.
Stoneburner bring a very different approach to sludge and doom metal with having a good balance between heaviness and melody as well as traces of post, crust, sludge and psychedelia which add up to a very dark and original sound.
Song lyrics cover person matters, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy, dark and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording as well as most of the song s being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Stoneburner are a very great sounding heavy, dark and original sludge/doom metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Some Can" "An Apology To A Friend In Need" "Done" and "The Phoenix". 8 out of 10.
