Link are a band from Belgium that plays a mixture of doom metal, crust and hardcore and this is a review of their 2015 album "Chapter IV" which will b e released in April by Distro-y Records.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album and a few seconds later melody and elements of crust are added onto the recording along with some growling vocals and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and you can hear a great amount of hardcore in the bands musical style.
When the music slows down that is when the doom metal influence is the most powerful and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the songs also bring in a small amount of d beats and as the album progresses they also bring in a couple of tracks that are very long and epic in length.
Link takes a musical style that is mostly rooted in crust and hardcore and mixes it in with doom metal and a more extreme vocal approach to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Link are a very great sounding mixture of doom metal, crust and hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Wasteland" and "History Repeats". 8 out of 10.
