Dead Hand are a band from Georgia that plays a very atmospheric and heavy form of sludge/doom metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Storm Of Demiurge" which was released by Third I Rex.
Psychedelic drones start off the album along with some spoken word samples and melodic guitar playing as well as some drum beats and after awhile the music goes into a heavier sludge metal direction along with some high pitched screams and the vocals also use growls at times and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
A good portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the slower riffs are very heavily influenced by doom metal while the cleaner sections of the music brings in elements of post rock and when solos and leads are utilized they are very dark and melodic and the whole album sticks to a very slow musical direction and they also bring in a brief acoustic instrumental before closing the album with a heavier track.
Dead Hand plays a style of sludge/doom metal that is very heavy, melodic and atmospheric and also brings in elements of death metal and post rock to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Dead hand are a very great sounding atmospheric sludge/doom metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ground To Ash" and "Storm Of The Demiurge". 8 out of 10.
