This is a review of a split ep between Finland's Frogskin and Lahdon Aikha which was released as a joint effort in 2014 between 82-Records, Rusto-Osiris and Ramekuukelli and we will start off the review with Frogskin a band that plays a very heavy form of sludge/doom metal.
Their side of the split starts off with a very distorted, heavy and slow sludge/doom metal sound and a few minutes alter growls and screams become a part of the track along with some melody and the production is very powerful on their side of the split along with some very dark lyrics and there is also a brief use of clean playing in the track as well as some atmospheric sounds being mixed in the heavier parts.
In my opinion Frogskin are a very great sounding sludge/doom metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split.
Next up is Lahdon Aikha a band that plays a mixture of sludge, doom metal and crustcore.
Their side of the split starts off with a clean and distorted sound before getting a bit more heavier and going for a more slow doom/sludge metal direction along with some powerful bass lines which also leads up to some crust style shouts along with elements of hardcore and the production on the song is very powerful along with some hateful lyrics.
In my opinion Lahdon Aikha are a very great sounding mixture of sludge, doom metal and crustcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band.
In conclusion i feel this is a very great sounding split and if you are a fan of doom metal, sludge and crust, you should check out this ep. 8 out of 10.
