Diesel King are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a very heavy form of sludge metal with elements of death metal and hardcore and this is a review of their 2015 album "Concrete Burial" which was released by When Planes Collide.
A very distorted sound starts off the album before going into more of a sludge metal direction along with some vocals that mix death metal growls with hardcore and you can also hear a lot of doom metal elements in the bands musical style along with some high pitched screams being brought in at times.
When the music goes into more of a mid paced direction the influence of hardcore really shows and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and as the album progresses the music start to incorporate more melody while some of the riffing also brings in the energy of punk rock in certain sections of the recording. while the faster parts also bring in elements of crust and grind along with a small amount of blast beats and the last racks brings in a brief use of melodic guitar leads..
Diesel King plays a style of sludge metal that is very heavy and also mixes in elements of doom, hardcore, crust and grind which also all add more heaviness to the music, the production sound s very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion Diesel King are a very great sounding sludge metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Infernus" "Prone to Destroy" and "The Mutilation". 8 out of 10.
