Gangrened are a band from Finland that plays a very heavy mixture of sludge and doom metal and this is a review of t heir 2014 ep "We Are Nothing" which was released by Bad Road Records.
A very distorted reverb sound starts off the ep before going into a very slow, dark and heavy sludge/doom metal sound and after a minute screams and growls are added into the music and after awhile melodic guitar solos and leads are added into certain sections of the recording and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Some of the solos and leads bring in elements of post metal and noise rock and on the second track spoken word samples are brought into the beginning of the track before the music makes a return back to a slow and heavy doom metal direction and the riffing also starts incorporating more melody along with some elements of crust and on the last track the bass guitars bring in a very powerful sound.
Gangrened plays a form of doom/sludge metal that is very heavy and always remains true to a very slow or mid paced direction, the production sound s very dark, raw and heavy while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion Gangrened are a very great sounding mixture of doom and sludge metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Them". 8 out of 10.
