A very dark, heavy and melodic sound starts off the album along with some high pitched sludge screams which they also mix in with some clean singing vocals and there are also a good mixture of both clean and heavy parts present throughout the recording which also gives the music more of a progressive edge along with some elements of post metal and all of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them.
Most of the song s stick to a very slow, heavy and melodic musical direction and a few of the tracks are very long and epic in length and when solos and leads are utilized they add more of a melodic and dark sound to the bands musical style and on of the tracks also brings in a small amount of radio samples and some of the tracks also bring in elements of stoner metal while some of the heavier riffs add in a huge doom metal influence to the tracks.
Steak Number Eight plays a style of sludge metal that is very heavy but more in an atmospheric and melodic direction than most bands in this musical genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Steak Number Eight are a very decent sounding atmospheric sludge metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Black Eyed" "Pilgrimage of A Blackheart" The Shrine" and "Tearwalker". 7/5 out of 10.
