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 th e 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 cust, you should check out this ep. 8 out of 10.
