A heavy and melodic sound starts off the album only with some aggressive hardcore sludge style vocals and the music has a sound that mixes southern style sludge with old school east coast hardcore.
On the other tracks the music starts going for a heavier yet slower direction and the doom metal elements really start to kick in and give the album an early 80's underground metal feeling while still having a great amount of 90's sludge and hardcore influences along with some groove metal being added onto some of the tracks and the vocals also start incorporating more melody to them while still sounding very aggressive at the same time.
On some of the later tracks the vocals start bringing in more death metal growls and screams along with a small amount of spoken word parts and movie samples and the band also brings in a more stoner rock edge to the songs as well as making each song sound very diverse along with some of the riffing and drumming speeding up a small amount in certain sections of the recording as well as bringing a punk rock feeling to the album and on the last track psychedelic elements are added into the song along with some clean playing.
Melmak show a good amount of diversity with their music taking the 90's sludge and hardcore sounds of the 90's and mixing them in with the heaviness of death metal, 80's doom and the modern feeling of stoner rock, the production has a very dark, heavy and raw sound while the lyrics cover dark, philosophical and metaphysical themes.
In my opinion Melmak are a very great sounding mixture of doom metal, sludge, stoner and hardcore and if you a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Collective Suicide" "Dinhuman" "Saturn" and "The Only Vision of All Gods". 8 out of 10.
