Desert Storm are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a mixture of stoner, sludge and doom metal with a touch of death metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Horizontal Life" which was released by Blindsight Records.
A 70's style stoner rock sound starts off the album along with a good mixture of melody and heaviness and after awhile aggressive yet melodic vocals become a part of the music and when solos and leads are added into the music they continue with the 70's classic rock sound and you can also hear a good amount of groove metal elements in the bands musical style.
At times spoken word parts can be heard in certain sections of the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and as the album progresses samples and elements of space and ambient music are added into the bands musical style and the vocals also bring in more of a death metal influence at times and a few of the tracks are long and epic in length and after a few songs the band brings in psychedelic elements along with small amounts of clean playing and acoustic guitars while they still focus more on heavy parts
Desert Storm takes a style of stoner rock and brings in the heaviness of sludge and doom metal as well as adding in a touch of death metal, ambient, space and psychedelic music to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism, Mythology and Metaphysical themes.
In my opinion Desert Storm are a very great sounding mixture of stoner, sludge and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Shadow of An Eagle" "Enslaved in The icy Tundra" "Lunar Dromes" and "Scorpion". 8 out of 10.
